Abstract: Dinosaur Tracks from Cretaceous Sediments of Peace River Canyon Near Hudson Hope, British Columbia

Phillip W. Currie, William A. S. Sarjeant

Dinosaur tracks first were described from the Peace River Canyon in 1926, but have received little subsequent study. Because the early described localities were threatened with submergence following construction of a new dam, a "rescue" expedition to cast or collect as many trackways as possible was sent out by the Provincial Museum of Alberta in September 1976. New discoveries included a 12 × 6-m bedding-plane surface with more than 70 hadrosaur footprints of types not hitherto described from this region.
