Share/Bookmark

Dinosaur Provincial Park is located about two and a half hours drive southeast of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The nearly 29-square-mile (75-square-km) park is best known for its extensive fossil beds, within which have been identified some 35 different species of dinosaurs from the Late Cretaceous Epoch (about 100 to 65 million years ago). Over 300 dinosaur skeletons have been found here. The park protects a very complex ecosystem including three communities: prairie grasslands, badlands, and riverside cottonwoods. Its ecosystem is surrounded by prairies but is unique unto itself. The park offers unique and stunning scenery, great camping and over a dozen interpretive programs designed to educate and entertain visitors of all ages.
