A new state park sets to open next year in the Niobrara chalk formations.

I don't anticipate any collecting being allowed so camera would be a must.

How much of the Niobrara formation is this state park going to take up?

It will take up only a tiny fraction of the total amount of exposed chalk.  When they say it is one of the largest exposures, I think they are referring to a continuous exposure.  Little Jerusalem is a beautiful place with lots of high cliffs.

Do you know who owns the rest of the chalk in that area?

99.9% of the chalk outcrops are on private ranchers’ property.

I'm aware of that :) - what I meant to ask is whether someone here knew (personally) which rancher owns specifically the chalk outcrops near Little Jerusalem..
