If you have never joined us in either the field or the lab duirng our "dino" projects, you are in for a real treat! Many of you may have walked around your local or national Museums of Natural History; you may have even seen folks working on fossils. This summer, however, you will get the opportunity to work in an authentic paleontology preparation lab, but be on the other side of the viewing windows! You'll get the training, and no experience is neccesary; you'll come away with not only some great memories and stories, but with a handful of new skills! Fossils we will work with range from Late Cretaceous marine reptiles, fish, and petrified trees, to terrestrial mammals and dinosaurs. Weekends will be 'off the clock,' which will give you great opportunities to visit anywhere in the Black Hills and plains of southwestern South Dakota - see you this summer!
