Peace River Regional Directors took a break from bylaw-talk on Thursday, and dedicated an hour to dinosaurs.

Rich McCrea and Lisa Buckley are from the Peace Region Palaeontology Research Centre in Tumbler Ridge. They spoke to the Peace River Regional District in Dawson Creek about some of their recent projects they have been working on.

For the past two years, the two have been excavating a Hadrosaur dinosaur skeleton in the Peace Region.

Buckley says that work is currently haulted for the winter months, but the pair should have the dinosaur fully dug-up by next year. For a previous story on the Hardosaur find, Click Here.

Meanwhile, McCrea and Buckley presented the board with a mounted replica bone of the Hadrosaur, that will now be displayed at the regional office.
