Grand Junction, Colo (KKCO) --- The Museum of Western Colorado is offering residents and visitors a unique experience unlike any other summer time activity.

With the help of paleontologists, participants of the Dino Dig program go out to a quarry and dig up dinosaur bones.

One goal of the program is to for people to see bones first hand rather than through a glass window at a museum and another goal is to map findings in order to figure out what happened during the late Jurassic era.

One to five day excavations are being offered and to find out more information and sign up, visit www.museumofwesternco.com.
