If you’ve always wanted to excavate a dinosaur, here’s your chance. Spend a week with us on our 2009 Wyoming Dinosaur Excavation in Shell, WY. There are four sessions to choose from between June 14 and July 11. Details can be found here, and there is also a link on the blog homepage. Last year’s excavation was detailed on the blog, starting with the June 1, 2008 entry.
Today we announced the Call for Papers for the Second Annual Meeting of the Southeastern Association of Vertebrate Paleontology. Professional, student, and avocational paleontologists are encouraged to submit abstracts on any topic related to vertebrate paleontology. Even if you’re not giving a presentation, these meetings are a lot of fun for anyone interested in paleontology. Registration information will be added to the SEAVP website shortly. There is also a link on the blog homepage.
In addition to these events, we’re planning a series of major excavations this year. I’m hoping to have as many as three or four separate excavations at Carmel Church, and a large Triassic excavation as well.
I’ll be posting daily blog updates from these meetings and excavations. Stay tuned!
