Ashfall Fossil Beds State Historic Park, Nebraska
Documents a visit to a world class fossil locality in rural northern
Nebraska. An eruption from the Yellowstone hot spot 11.8 million years
ago (now located in Idaho) gradually suffocated then buried hundreds of
animals near a small lake. Paleontologists from the University of
Nebraska led by Dr. Mike Voohees have been excavating the site since
the 1970’s. A must see for fossil enthusiasts!
