Become a fossil hunter and help discover how communities have changed through time. Experience what it is like to be a paleontologist, finding and identifying new specimens. You will be picking 30,000-year-old fossil specimens from rock matrix that has been brought back from Natural Trap Cave, WY. These specimens are part of research project that is examining how the community of species living around Natural Trap Cave has changed since the extinction of the cheetahs, lions, dire wolves, mammoths, camels, horses, and other megafauna that used to live in North America.

You are welcome to participate anytime that is convenient, with no commitment necessary. All are welcome, so bring your friends!
