MSBCA Camping 2015

Camping Venue – Dinosaur Provincial Park

Today Dinosaur Provincial Park is world famous for its dinosaur fossil finds. So much so that UNESCO designated it a World Heritage Site in 1979. A mind-boggling number of species have been found here – 40 and counting – but what really puts it over the top is that the bonebeds have yielded more than 300 specimens, which grace museums around the world. The park has also been designated a Natural Preserve to protect the extensive fossil fields and the valley’s fragile environment, a complex mix of badlands and cottonwood river habitat.
