Scientists in Snowmass and their team of diggers are half-way through a seven week project to uncover fossils from the mud of an ancient lake. Now time is running out, to find as much as possible, before crews on a dam building project have to resume their work. Colorado Public Radio's Mike Lamp checked in with Kirk Johnson of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science about what they've discovered lately, and how they'll proceed toward the end of the job.
