Come dig with us in 2023!

GDFM will be hosting a week-long dinosaur dig for anyone who wants to know more about these great animals. 

We begin our week at 3 pm on Monday, June 26 with a tour of our museum, and conclude our week on Friday, June 30 at noon with lunch and a send-off.

Our time during the week will be spent excavating dinosaur fossils in the Glendive area, preparing fossils in our own fossil lab, and daily lectures by Tommy Lohman.  The daily lectures will be a merging of both theological and scientific perspectives about dinosaurs.

You will have each evening on your own, with a free afternoon on Thursday to enjoy some of Glendive’s other attractions.

The minimum age for a digger is 12 years old.  The fee will be $500.00 per person; in addition to digging, you will receive a GDFM t-shirt and a lab/lecture notebook. 

This fee does not include travel, lodging, or food; except for the Tuesday and Friday lunches.  Please fill out the application below, note it is for the GDFM week-long dig, and send in a deposit of 50%.  The deposit will be required to hold your spot and the final portion of your dig fee will be required by the end of May. 

Please reach out to Tommy Lohman ( or Robert Canen ( if you have any questions.  We hope to see you this summer!
