RE: How to be a paleontologist
This is the exact boat I am in and I would like to plug the Field Experience
Program at the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Alberta. I only spent a week there
last summer but it was the fulfillment of a childhood dream.
I was able to prospect in the badlands, work on a ceratopsian bonebed (138),
work in the lab, watch a helicopter lift (that turned into a drop...),
learn new things, work and talk with many interesting people. What more
could a newbie want? This year I am hoping to make it 2 weeks!
If you want an experience then check out this program.
ps. I only wish the Nature Museum here in Ottawa had programs that promoted
education and preparation :(
