Join Us On Our Dinosaur Hunting Adventure?
As you may know by now, the goal of our Experiment.com campaign is to raise the funds necessary to repair roads, purchase supplies, and rent vehicles, all of which is required to excavate three dinosaur skeletons and transport them back to Philadelphia and New Jersey. Easier said than done - I know! But it's not just fund-raising part of that process that we need help with. The funds are crucial, and of course always very much appreciated, but we also need people power to actually get those skeletons out of the ground and back to our labs so that we and other scientists can study them.
If you've ever dreamed about joining a paleontological expedition, this is your chance. You can be a part of the Bighorn Basin Dinosaur Project's 2015 field season. Every year we host high school and college students, teachers, parents, retirees - anyone who is interested in going on a paleontological adventure - regardless of their amount of experience. If you are interested, download our information packet. You can also read about our past adventures on our blog: www.NHinNJ.blogspot.com. And of course, you can always email me if you have any additional questions: Jason.Schein@sos.nj.gov.
If lab work is more your thing, we certainly could use some volunteers to help preparing those same fossils in our fossil prep labs. You supply the time - we'll supply the training and the fossils! Just e-mail me if you're interested in this as well.
I hope to see you in the field this season, or in our prep labs in the near futur! And as always, thank you for supporting our project and our research. We're almost there!
