Part of a National Geographic dig in 1985 - 86, the quarry is unique for its specimens of early plant life including bamboo, rice, bullrushes, hackberry, and borages. And right beside them are remains of early day animals. It is said that the site is the richest fossil site in the world. Minium Fossil Quarry is being developed by Fort Hays State University as a satelite of the Sternberg Museum.
