"There are many reasons I participate each summer; the sheer beauty of
the Badlands, the amazing people I get to meet and work with, and the
satisfaction that my summer vacation was not spent being lazy. But what it
comes down to is that first time you're out in the field working a dig site
and you uncover the fossilized bone of an animal that died over 65 million
years ago and you're the first human being to touch it!"
"A life long dream of finding a dinosaur skeleton came true while on a MRF dig in 2006. It was a fantastic experience to learn from the professional MRF staff the techniques in excavating and preparing a fossil skeleton, especially one which was personally discovered."
"I had the best time in ND. I would love to go back and find more fossils and bones. Thank you MRF I will see you next year! Check out this page for more North High School dinosaur pictures."
"I have had some pretty exciting moments working in the entertainment business, but few can compare to standing on an 18-inch ledge, 75 feet in the air...digging a Torosaurus out of the side of a hill. MRF: They give new meaning to 'How I spent my summer vacation!'"
"Stopped in for a day dig last fall. I have been to a few other digs, and they do what they say. I was blown away by the types of fossils that we saw and that MRF has collected. The staff was friendly and explained it to us as we went along. Worth the experience, and the fees are a great deal. We were never able to really dig at the other places we attended in the past. We did it all at MRF."
"It was the adventure of a lifetime!"
