Day Tours: @ 9:30 am meet in parking lot at Marmarth Cafe/Gas Station in Marmarth, ND.

Breakfast is not included with Day Tours. However, the Marmarth Cafe is a great place to eat before we start the tour.

Day Tours consist of a safety overview and introduction to the Hell Creek Formation, followed by a badlands driving tour with regional geology overview. We will then visit an active excavation site where we will assist the crew until lunch.  After our quick lunch break we will prospect for new fossil material in the badlands. Before the end of the field day, we will return to the excavation site for hands-on plaster field jacket & specimen removal demonstrations. After returning to our camp, there will be a brief hands on lesson on how to make casts in our field laboratory as well as some time to work with some of our fossil preparation equipment. A BBQ dinner will follow. At 7:00 pm the Day Tour is officially over, but you are welcome to stay for open lab time and movie night.

Nearby hotels often fill several weeks in advance. The Montana Motel in Baker, Montana and the Bunk House in Marmarth, North Dakota are two nearby options.

Please call or email for more information.
