Volunteer prep program

Hello again everyone!

With the fall semester at the university of Alberta in full swing, the paleontological society on campus has once again started up it’s volunteer prep program! This program allows anyone with an interest in paleontology to come in and work on fossils that were collected in the previous season.
No experience is necessary and we have volunteers from a variety of backgrounds. This year they are working on Edmontosaurus material from the Edmonton, Alberta area.
The first picture below is just a sample of how many projects are being worked on by the volunteers. The second is of a vertebra being works on by one of the volunteers!
This is an amazing program for anyone interested in the science and preparation of dinosaurs. If you would like more information, let us know. A link to their Facebook group will be posted shortly.
Enjoy!

  1. This looks like a very exciting opportunity for students interested in the field. I can imagine a lot of people being wishing to get involved since you don’t require previous experience.

    • its definitely a great opportunity for a lot of people who would not have the chance otherwise while they are at the university. We have students from many faculties, from science to the arts to a few library and information studies students!
