This was an eye opener. The site is not there for either research or finding fossils. It is there to show people how the search and retrieval of fossils occur. The young man at the site one the day we were there had finished his graduate work and was getting into a master's program. But to get into the master's program he needed hands on experience with fossil digs. So he was an intern who answered everyone's questions. The site is large, it has several neat statues, on the walk to the rhino barn you will find monuments that talk about the animals inhabiting the year before and after the volcano eruption that killed so many animals. There is a state park charge so be prepared to pay for both the park entrance and the state park fee.
