Make Tracks for the Paleon Museum in Glenrock
Just across the street from the Historic Higgins Hotel, the Paleon Museum in Glenrock is home to an amazing array of dinosaur bones and geological treasures.
“The Paleon is an unusual place,” said ScottPeterson, University of Alberta Paleontologist in a January 2016 news article. “It’s not a big museum, but it doesn’t have to be because it’s got the badlands for a backyard. The working museum has dinosaurs on display, but also provides opportunities to experience paleontology in action.” Peterson says before he visited the Paleon Museum as a 13-year-old, dinosaurs were just images in a book.

It’s not unusual for the local dinosaur museum and the people who spend their time there to spark an interest among aspiring paleontologists, both young and old. A group of women, affectionately called the “Bone Biddies,” volunteer their time to support the paleontologist who manages the museum and its collections. While the Bone Biddies are helping prepare museum discoveries for exhibit, they become experts on the bones they are preparing and love to share their knowledge.
