What Other Diggers Have to Say

Tynsky Fossils Dig days are some of our top things to do in the summer. We have children from ages 4 to 15 and all of our kids enjoy digging up fossil fish, insects, plants, or maybe one day we will be lucky enough to find a crocodile, it's like a treasure hunt. All the Tynsky family is very knowledgeable, kind, patient, and a lot of fun. Night digs are our favorite the amount of fossil fish you see is unreal. Growing up in southwest wyoming I never realized that millions of year old fossils were right under my feet. Can't wait for summer to continue our new hobby!!
The Condos’s

Digging fossils at the Tynskys fossil quarry in Kemmerer, WY is such a great experience. For me it brings back a youthful achievement of instant gratification that the whole family will enjoy. We are able to uncover 50 million year old treasures that haven’t been seen before. My motto is “Digging fossils is like a box of chocolates, you just never know what your going to get!”

The Tynskys are the most patient and knowledgeable people to work with. They take the time to explain the process and will be digging right beside you with as much enthusiasm as a newbie. I highly recommend getting in touch with Rob and Kodi Tynsky for an experience you will never forget!
