"I went last year and had a great time. It was fun, yet I learned more about paleontology and fossils than I thought was possible. These guys (and gals) are great!"
"In the four years I have been digging with MRF, I have found the experience to be very rewarding. I continue to return there each summer because I have found the MRF staff are patient and friendly with new comers, and provide challenges to those with more experience. MRF has established a well rounded learning environment which is second to none. At MRF you experience Paleontology from excavation of the specimen in the field to its complete preparation in the laboratory."
"I had the best time in ND. I would love to go back and find more fossils and bones. Thank you MRF I will see you next year! Check out this page for more North High School dinosaur pictures."
"There are many reasons I participate each summer; the sheer beauty of
the Badlands, the amazing people I get to meet and work with, and the
satisfaction that my summer vacation was not spent being lazy. But what it
comes down to is that first time you're out in the field working a dig site
and you uncover the fossilized bone of an animal that died over 65 million
years ago and you're the first human being to touch it!"
"An excellent practical exposure to how paleontology is 'done.' The
whole spectrum is available, from prospecting, through extraction and
retrieval to preparation of fossils for exhibition - including making casts and molds."
"It's one frill after another!"
