AAA Editor Notes

Devil's Coulee Dinosaur & Heritage Museum is in the County of Warner Administration Building w. off Hwy. 4, following signs to 300 County Rd. Embryonic fossils in their nests were found on the Milk River Ridge in 1987. The specimens were from a hadrosaur (a duck-billed dinosaur); the location was the first nesting site found in Canada. A 2-hour walking tour allows for first-hand inspection of the dinosaur egg site, where ongoing excavations often yield new scientific discoveries. Museum displays feature a hadrosaur nest, embryo, fossils and models of dinosaurs. Also included are hands-on activities for all ages and an exhibit about early area settlement. Note: The guided hikes are organized at the museum, but visitors must drive their own private vehicles to the dig site. The nesting site is in a primitive area not suitable for small children or those with mobility or medical problems. Allow 30 minutes minimum for the museum, 3 hours minimum for tour and museum. Guided tours are available.
Museum $8; $6 (ages 6-17 and 60+); $25 (family, two adults and three children ages 6-17). Tour of dig site, including museum tour, $20; $18 (ages 6-17 and 60+); $55 (family, two adults and three children ages 6-17).
