Some of the most extensive dinosaur fossil fields in the world are found here. The area's Badlands and cottonwood river habitat are the other significant features that resulted in the park's designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. Strange land formations rise up on all sides, sculpted by wind and water into hauntingly beautiful shapes sunbathed in terra cotta, bronze and amber. The park is also home to the Royal Tyrell Museum of Palaeontology's Field Station.
