ICR's 2024 Dinosaur Dig Experience
Do you dream of unearthing a bone from a Triceratops? A hadrosaur? A T. rex? Have you ever wondered what it feels like to hold a freshly dug dinosaur fossil in your hands, or to see other animals buried along with dinosaurs, providing evidence for the global flood? Now is your time to make this dream a reality!

We are excited to announce our first ever Dinosaur Dig Experience! This year, we will be digging in the fossil-rich landscapes of Glendive, Montana. We invite you to roll up your sleeves with us, grab a digging tool, and uncover the mysterious creatures that lie within the sediment layers of this barren land.

This dino dig isn’t just about digging. It’s about learning, exploring, and examining the evidence that demonstrates a catastrophic global flood. You’ll have the unique opportunity to learn from ICR Research Scientist Dr. Brian Thomas, Field Paleontologist Mr. Tommy Lohman, and Glendive Dinosaur and Fossil Museum Director Mr. Robert Canen. Who knows what you will discover!

No experience? No problem! Whether you’re a seasoned fossil hunter or a curious first-timer, our experienced team will guide you every step of the way. Tools, safety equipment, and training will be provided.
