Future Excavation Plans

In 2009 Lou Tremblay will continue excavating this locality in the hopes of finding more bones. The site has yielded elements from two individuals and we are hoping to find more of the juvenile Triceratops, since their remains are relatively rare.

Baldy View (Skybox)

Baldy View was discovered by Tyler Lyson in 1997 while still in middle school. The locality had several Triceratops bones on the surface, including a beautifully preserved brow horn. Lou Tremblay went back to this locality, to determine if any more of the skull was still inside the hill. To everyone's surprise the site continued to produce beautifully preserved bones, including the majority of an articulated juvenile Triceratops skull. This site, while named Baldy View, has been nicknamed Skybox because of its impressive view of the badlands.
