If you're interested in dinosaurs and geology, this is a fabulous program. The leader and instructor are fine people. The museum is excellent. Learning to do lab prep on a dinosaur bone is a super experience. On a five pt. scale this is a six.

If you want to learn a lot about dinosaurs in a week and enjoy working with other people on a project to help preserve the past, I highly recommend this program. The staff and the other people on the program were all nice to be around. The staff was very good at teaching us how to use the tools and explaining what is was we were looking at. Also, Thermopolis is in a pretty part of the country.

WOW!! It's really fascinating to learn how dinosaur bones are removed from the surrounding stone and then to do it. I appreciate all those skeletons so much more now.

I was new to paleontology when I participated in this program, and it was challenging, fun, and a great learning experience. I came away energized and excited about my small contribution in preserving the past for future generations, and possibly participating in other, similar programs. Both the leaders and the participants were a joy to be around.

If you've always wanted to be a paleontologist for just a day this is the perfect experience for you. Working alongside professionals and with real dinosaur bones, fulfilled a lifelong dream for me. Due to wet weather, we were unable to see the dig site which was a little disappointing. On a plus side, we were able to look for and find fossils on our geological road trip through the awe inspiring canyon.
