Digging It! : Fossil Finds In Fremont County

Discoveries of prehistoric life have taken place all over the globe, including right here in Fremont County, Colorado. For well over a century, paleontologists and local residents have found several hundred fossils representing different species of animals and plants. These fossils cover a wide range of geological periods from the earliest forms of vertebrates (450 million years ago) to just before the extinction of the dinosaurs (roughly 65 million years ago). The fossils discovered in Fremont County are among the most important finds in the study of paleontology.
