“find the fossil fish!”

There are an abundance of fossil fish in the “Green River Formation.” Most people find enough fish to satisfy their appetite in the first two hours. It is our experience that the effort one puts into splitting the rock down into its smallest size is what will give you the greatest potential to finding numerous quantities of fossil fish! Privileges of digging with Warfield Fossils Fossil Safari® You are allowed to keep ALL of the common fish you find, regardless of their size! This Includes: Knightia, Diplomystus, Phareodus, Mioplosus, Amphiplaga, and Priscacara! There is no need to call before you come, there are no phones at the quarry. There is always someone at the quarry during business hours. Just print a map, show up and we will give you the tools to dig. It's that easy. Tools We will provide you with the proper tools and a basic guided lesson to ensure you a successful fossil hunt! There are hard hats and safety glasses available for your safety and use at the Quarry. What You will need to Bring Water, food, sunglasses, sunscreen, hat and gloves.
