Nebraska's Dinosaur Tracksite

Nebraska may be rich in mammal fossils, but incredibly few dinosaur fossils have been found within the borders of our state. We visit with Matt Joeckel, State Geologist of Nebraska, to learn more about an important Cretaceous Period dinosaur tracksite that was discovered in 2002 on a farm in Jefferson County.
