Students, archeologists get to follow dinosaur tracks in Texas

Students and archeologists in Texas got to experience history Friday after the waterline at a lake dropped, revealing dinosaur tracks in what used to be a ‘Jurassic Park.’

The tracks, which are along the banks of Grapevine Lake, were discovered in 2006 and have been preserved by the Army Corps of Engineers, which has been covering them up with gunite and dirt, MyFoxDFW reports.

With the help of a grant from a teacher in nearby Southlake, students hope to use molds and digital scans of the tracks to create an environmental center exhibit that others can visit.

Dinosaur tracks were first uncovered at the lake in the early 1980s.
