Dana Brown Fossil Prep Lab and Dig Site
The Fossil Prep Lab and Dig Site are features unique to the Saint Louis Science Center. Start by exploring the realistic field experience our interactive dig site has to offer. Smell the scent of sage, chip away at dirt and uncover dinosaur fossils buried beneath the earth. Be a paleontologist. The Dig Site is a reconstruction of the Badlands of Montana where, through the Annual Paleotrek program, the Science Center excavates for fossils. All the fossils in the Dig Site are casts from the real fossils that can be seen on display in the Prep Lab. The Prep Lab currently features interactive tables as well as several displays of real dinosaur fossils. Be sure to stop in and talk with staff and volunteers as they work on preparing real dinosaur fossils.
