Rare Jurassic fossils discovered near Lake Powell

In March 2023, paleontologists were documenting fossil tracksites when they discovered a rare fossil horizon that was full of the impressions of bones and bone fragments of tritylodontid mammaliaforms, or early herbivorous mammal-relatives from the Early Jurassic. The public can learn more about this and other recent Glen Canyon NRA fossil discoveries at an October 11, 2023, National Fossil Day interpretive event being held at Zion National Park. https://www.nps.gov/glca/learn/news/20231006.htm
