If you want to study dinosaurs, Utah is the place to be.

Reporters Leia Larsen and Benjamin Zack sat down with James Kirkland, the state paleontologist with the Utah Geological Survey, to find out what Utah looked like 100 million years ago and learn about the discovery boom happening right now.

They also head to Ogden’s George S. Eccles Dinosaur Park to meet with a volunteer who is spending his retirement excavating fossils and assisting with new discoveries.
