Grand Junction Colo. (KKCO) - The expedition program for the dinosaur journey museum is expanding. It's now offering half and full day adventures. The dig gives both the young and young at heart the chance to dig up the past.

Adventures meet at the museum at 8:30 in the morning and then head out to the field.
Lunch is provided so you can keep your eye’s on the prize digging up those dinosaur bones.

The quarry is located out in the desert so before going on a dig you want to make sure you have sun screen and bring a light jacket as the weather can change,

    How does it come out of taxes Duh? The price of lunch and the ride comes out of the fee and the digs keep the museum open.
