Testimonials

"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."

John Akerley
Retired engineer


"I had a really wonderful time in Marmarth. I have now realized that Paleontology is something that I am interested in and want to go to school to study. It is really neat what you have going here in Marmarth, there really isn't anything like it. I really had a great time out there. I met some really great people that I got the chance to work with, and I had great fun as well. It would really be cool if I could come back and perhaps do it again. And it would be cool if I would get the chance to work with the same people."

"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 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!"
