After re-examining a few old fossils sites un-touched since the 1930's, Scientists have found a new cache of dinosaur bones in Black Mesa, Oklahoma (not to be confused with a fictional research facility in New Mexico).

Black Mesa has been a very productive locality, with several tons of dinosaur fossils having been removed from the area.

I wonder if they allow volunteers to help.

My attempt at creating a museum and community center to help people find an interest in the world around them.

An historic site, revisited; I have to admit that I was not aware of it.
Pretty neat that they had college and youth groups involved!

I recommend sending the link on to Valve. Dinosaur headcrab zombies would be great in the next game :)
