Hell Creek Dinosaur Dig



Hell Creek Field Expedition week of July 27th, 1998 and August 2, 1998

        *Have you always wanted to participate on one of the dinosaur digs
you watched on TV or read about in books about dinosaurs?

        *Are you wanting to experience the thrill of discovery of fossil
remains that have not seen the light of day since 65 million years ago?

        *Do you want to learn the techniques that vertebrate
paleontologists use in exploration and excavation of dinosaur and
associated fossils?

        *Are you a teacher who wants to gain a valuable hands-on experience
you can utilize in your class room or a student wanting to gain skills in
this area?

        *Are you a parent who has a budding paleontologist in your own
family who wants to encourage this person?

If your answer to any of these questions is yes, then this is a program you
should seriously consider joining in 1998!

We are offering our fourth year of a field program exploring for and
excavating dinosaurs and other vertebrates in the Hell Creek Formation near
Lemmon, South Dakota. This program will be offered in July and August 1998
and this program will continue our exciting exploration and excavation work
from the 1997 season.

Registration will be limited to a maximum of 20 persons per week and will
cost $400 per person. Families are most welcome (and encouraged) but all
children must be 13 years old or older in order to register. As always,
children must be accompanied by a paid adult (parent or guardian) in our
program. For more information check the registration form to register for
the dig.
