Each summer students and staff from the Museum of the Rockies and Montana State University come to the research station to excavate eggs and skeletons and to learn about dinosaur growth, behavior, evolution and ecology. The area is one of the most productive dinosaur sites on earth.
John "Jack" R. Horner is the Curator of Paleontology, Museum of the Rockies and Regents Professor, Montana State University. Dr. Horner discovered the first dinosaur eggs in the Western Hemisphere, first evidence of parental care among dinosaurs, and the first dinosaur embryos. He served as the technical advisor for all of the Jurassic Park films, and was partial inspiration for one of the lead characters, Dr. Alan Grant. For more information, see Museum Of The Rockies.
