Paleontology in Colorado
Colorado public lands also have several internationally known paleontological sites, which are referred to as “localities.” Garden Park, near CaÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â±on City, is one of the most significant localities for dinosaurs in the world. The Kremmling Cretaceous-Ammonite locality is one of the largest concentrations of marine fossils in North America.
In 2015, Paleontologists excavated duckbill dinosaur bones and skin impressions at a the Walters Bone Quarry south of Rangely, Colorado. Colorado Northwestern Community College excavated the site under a permit from the White River Field Office.
