Are you looking for a fun, active, and educational way to spend your Saturday afternoon? Why not join Insights for prehistoric tour of fossilized dinosaur tracks right in the heart of the Border Region?
Join us on the first Saturday of each month at 9:00 am Insights’ tour guides will take you on a three mile hike through our 211 acres of fossilized dinosaur tracks and giant fossil beds from the Cretaceous Period. A long time ago, the Chihuahuan Desert was actually very wet. Millennia of geological activity changed the environment, but we can still see the evidence of dinosaurs here today. Insights’ knowledgeable tour guides can cover a variety of topics associated with our DinoTracks. Please let us know if you would specifically like to learn more about animal tracking, dinosaurs, geology, paleontology, and much more.
Tours usually last about three hours, so be sure to bring plenty of water, snack and sunscreen. As you will be hiking over moderate terrain for about three miles, you will need to wear comfortable closed toed shoes and dress appropriately for the weather.
Upon registration, you will receive an email with tour meeting point directions, contact information, and additional logistical information.
