Celebrating National Fossil Day in Utah

SALT LAKE CITY — Utah has more evidence of prehistoric life and dinosaurs than most states, so Wednesday — National Fossil Day — is a great day to celebrate one of the things that makes the Beehive State so great.

To celebrate, KSL’s Dan Spindle created a list of the best places to see fossils with fall break coming up for several school districts.

Northern Utah

They all charge admission except for the BYU museum, but they accept donations.

Southern Utah

Both Moab area hikes are shorter hikes and they’re a way to see fossils outside of the museum, in the natural world.

The St. George location is a cool facility that’s affordable — $4 for children, $8 for adults.

Eastern Utah

The Utah Geological Survey has an interactive guide showing dozens of track sites, museums and quarries where Utahns can see fossils and learn more about dinosaurs.
