In 2007 Burpee Museum crews were alerted to a large, Jurassic aged dinosaur fossil locality outside of Hanksville, Utah. Excavation of the site, the Hanksville-Burpee Dinosaur Quarry began with the start of the “Jurassic Journey” expeditions in 2008. The Hanksville-Burpee Dinosaur Quarry is an amazing site composed of a Sauropod-dominated bonebed that stretches for over a quarter mile. Since 2008, crews have removed over 12,000 pounds of fossil material, including: Allosaurus, Apatosaurus, Camarasaurus, and Diplodocus fossils. The Hanksville-Burpee Dinosaur Quarry also made a big splash in national and international news when National Geographic named it one of the best dinosaur finds in 2008. A big part of the Hanksville-Burpee Dinosaur Quarry’s success is the great relationship between the local Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the town of Hanksville, and the Burpee Museum expedition crews.
