Tate Dinosaur Safaris

Casper | Park to Park

The goals of Tate Dinosaur Safaris are to offer fun, educational experiences to the public while building up the museum’s collections for display and research. Registration will be through the museum. The fee includes six nights of lodging, six dinners, five field lunches, five breakfasts at the hotel in Lusk or Medicine Bow, snacks, drinks/water, and all ground transportation from Casper. The price is $1000 for a double occupancy room. There is an extra fee ($300) if you want to room solo. A non-refundable deposit of $450.00 is required upon registration to hold your place. The balance of the fee is due no later than 60 days prior to the start of the dig. The minimum age for participation is 16 and all 16 and 17-year-olds must be accompanied by an adult participant. We take between seven and ten people out on each dig, so spots fill up fast.
The trips are run by Tate’s field operations and prep lab manager, JP Cavigelli. JP’s expertise has led to his participation in numerous paleontological expeditions throughout the West as well as in Niger, Mongolia, Alaska’s North Slope, and Tanzania. JP’s recent projects include leading the excavation and preparation of Lee Rex, the only Tyrannosaurus rex found in Wyoming that is staying in Wyoming.
