On October 16, 2020, the team from the Denver Museum of Nature & Science transported Pops to Denver. The process took about six hours total, but we've condensed it to just over four minutes for you. Special thanks to the Mapelli family for joining us on this special day! The Mapelli family donated the fossil to the county in 1986 so all Weld County residents could enjoy it!
