Description: The Dinosaur Provincial Park, located at the heart of the province of Alberta's badlands, embraces not only a particularly beautiful scenery, but also contains some of the most important fossil discoveries ever made - dating to the 'Age of Reptiles' (among which about 35 species of dinosaur, dating back some 75 million years have been found). --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
  Dinosaur Provincial Park is a World Heritage Site located about 2 hours drive east of Calgary, Alberta, Canada or 48 kilometres northeast of the community of Brooks. The park is situated in the valley of the Red Deer River, which is noted for its striking badland topography. It is well known for being one of the greatest dinosaur fossil beds in the world. Thirty-nine dinosaur species have been discovered here and more than 500 specimens have been removed and exhibited in museums across the globe. Its significance justified it becoming a World Heritage Site in 1979. --Wikipedia. Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License.
