Well after 7 long years McAbees fossil site is reopening under the watchful eyes of the Bonaparte First Nations. Boy I can hardly wait to get back there and fossil hunt again. Does anyone know the details - how much do they charge, what are the new rules. limits etc?

There will be access via tours but no collecting will be allowed: 

 

"The McAbee Fossil Beds Heritage Site is protected under the Province’s Heritage Conservation Act, and removing, disturbing, or destroying the fossils there is not permitted. The site will be open to the public for free guided tours from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Monday during summer 2019. Future plans for the site include an interpretative centre, an ethnobotanical garden, a trails system with interpretive signs, viewpoints, and a research and storage facility for ongoing scientific research."  LINK

So just as I suspected, it will be a "look but don't touch" operation.  No thanks!

Bit of a letdown, but no surprise.
