Scott, Brad, and I are headed east to Raleigh, NC for the annual Society of Vertebrate Paleontology meeting. The conference runs from Wednesday through Saturday and will be attended by many of the most well known paleontologists in the world, as well as preparators, students, and other people in the paleo world. This year is an especially strong showing for Burpee with three poster abstracts accepted. Scott and Dr. Tyler Lyson are presenting a poster about the Ninja Turtle site in Montana, Betsy Carlson (one of our museum educators) has a poster about the Jane Collaborative, and myself, Scott, Sheila Rawlings (our Director of Education), Betsy, and Sue Fivecoat (Utah BLM) are presenting a poster about our Jurassic Journey program in Utah.
We will have more updates throughout the week on the Burpee Museum Facebook page!
