Jan 2013 Program: Dinosaur Digging in Montana
Presented by Jim Van Winkle & Everett Barton
Jim Van Winkle and his 14 year old grandson Everett Barton will tell us about their summer trip to Montana, traveling through 7 states. They spent one week with Paleontologist, Nate Murphy, from the Judith River Dinosaur Institute. Working with 12 other dig team members, they excavated bones for a long necked Camarasaurus and from a Stegosaurus at a lower level. Everett will talk about his experience and tell of the three Camarasaurus bones that he uncovered. Jim will tell about the sites they visited on the way up and back. The two of them brought back a large 50 pound piece of petrified wood from the Shirley Basin in Southern Wyoming.
