Florissant Fossil Quarry
Divide, Colorado – Point of Geological Interest #F12
Although specimen collecting is prohibited in Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, there is a private quarry just to the north that does allow collecting for a fee. On-site collecting is offered for groups, schools, and individuals. The quarry has regular summer hours, or may be visited by appointment.
