Hello everyone, I'm going to be in Alberta soon and I was hoping to do some fossil hunting. I read on a previous post to this forum that dinosaur fossils can be found in the Horseshoe Valley, but I was wondering if anyone has any other suggestions near Drumheller, or if they could provide any tips for this locale. I'm aware of the laws regarding fossil collection as well, all specimens will be catch and release. I'm just trying to fulfill a dream I've had since watching Jurassic Park 20 years ago haha. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
I recently moved to Calgary from Winnipeg and would like to go fossil hunting - but I don’t know where to go. I am familiar with Alberta’s regulations pertaining to surface collection. I know most people don’t like to give out the locations of their favorite fishing holes or fossil sites. Any guidance you can provide for locations would be appreciated.
Hiya! Wentout today to look out for fossils for the first time. Stumbled upon what seems to look like some type of vertebra on a river bank? Not entirely sure if it's a fossil at all, since there were lots of deer bone fragments in the vicinity too. Looks to be a little older though?
