What to know before you visit
Date—September 13-17, 2010
Location—Glendive, Montana (in the Badlands)
Leaders/instructors—Buddy Davis, dinosaur sculptor for the museum, musician, and popular AiG speaker, will assist with the dig and provide exciting programs in the evenings for everyone on the dig team. Buddy has been on many dinosaur excavations, including one on the North Slope of Alaska. The Foundation Advancing Creation Truth (FACT) will provide a team of experts, including FACT Director, Otis Kline, as well as all of the equipment necessary for a professional dig.
What to expect—We’ll get up early each morning and head out to the dig site together. We will excavate parts of a Triceratops skeleton, but we may also find baby Triceratops bones, broken off T. Rex teeth, crocodile teeth and scutes, Edmontosaurus and raptor bones. Lunch will be provided at the site. We’ll head back to the hotel early enough for everyone to clean up before dinner, which will be served in the hotel conference room. The evenings will be full of fellowship, worship, learning and fun, as we enjoy special programs provided by Buddy after dinner.
Additional activities—In addition to the dig, we’ll make time for a trip to a local state park to see some of the natural wonders of the area. We will also get to visit the Glendive Dinosaur & Fossil Museum, a new museum focusing on creation in Glendive, founded and operated by FACT!
Lodging—We recommend that participants stay at the Comfort Inn in Glendive. It will be the staging area for transportation to the dig and other destinations as well as the location for dinner and the evening programs. The hotel provides breakfast for guests. (Lodging is not included in the cost of the dig.)
