Looking for a great place to find fossils in Kansas? Turns out the western half of the state is your best bet. Commentator Rex Buchanan has a few cool places in mind that you can visit -- places that provide insight into what Kansas was like millions of years ago.

Commentator Rex Buchanan is the interim director of the Kansas Geological Survey at the University of Kansas. He's also a regular contributor to Kansas Public Radio.

Production assistance for this commentary was provided by KPR News Intern Austin Fitts, a graduate of the University of Kansas.
