About This Project
This is an invitation to work alongside paleontologists for a week (or more!) this summer as we collect, excavate and document the fossilized remains of ecosystems that existed hundreds of millions of years ago. The Bighorn Basin is famously fossil-rich. In previous years volunteers helped excavate T. rex and Triceratops fossils from the Cretaceous and Diplodocus and Allosaurs from the late Jurassic Period rocks. Join our team and contribute to decades-long research projects!
