Toadstool Park is in a region of badlands formed on the flank of the Pine Ridge Escarpment near Crawford, NE. The landscapes offer stunning vistas of rugged badlands and the vast plains of North America's interior. Immensely valuable fossil deposits are contained in the sediments that comprise these landscapes. They are the object of ongoing research projects by Chadron State College scientists, Drs. Mike Leite and Joe Corsini in cooperation with the U.S. Forest Service.
