FOSSILS OF THE CRETACEOUS INTERIOR SEAWAY OF
Eighty-million years ago, during
much of the Age of Dinosaurs, South Dakota was covered by a
shallow inland seaway. Join us to help document fossil
discoveries; including marine reptiles, pterosaurs, gigantic
fish, sharks and baculites; while surveying along the Missouri
River. Enjoy the beautiful South Dakota prairie, where we will
be working in the gorgeous cliffs of the Niobrara Formation, and
the rolling hills of the Pierre Shale. Led by Dr. Darrin Pagnac
and Dr. Clint Boyd. Camp is based out of Chamberlain, SD, with

Jersey State Museum’s 2013 Paleontology Field School
will focus on collecting
and documenting vertebrate fossils, such as dinosaurs,
crocodiles, turtles, fish, and mammals in the continental
rocks of both Late Cretaceous and Paleogene age in the
northern portions of the Bighorn Basin in northern Wyoming
and southern Montana. Other opportunities may arise, such
as collecting at Devonian, marginal marine fish and plant
fossils from Beartooth
Butte or Eocene mammals at Tatman
Mountain. The course is lead by David C. Parris (Curator of
Natural History, NJSM) and Jason P. Schein (Assistant
Curator of Natural History, NJSM).
