Testimonials

"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!"

"I have had some pretty exciting moments working in the entertainment business, but few can compare to standing on an 18-inch ledge, 75 feet in the air...digging a Torosaurus out of the side of a hill. MRF: They give new meaning to 'How I spent my summer vacation!'"

Steve Cohen, Long Island City, NY
Retired Broadway Producer


"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."

"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!"

"A life long dream of finding a dinosaur skeleton came true while on a MRF dig in 2006. It was a fantastic experience to learn from the professional MRF staff the techniques in excavating and preparing a fossil skeleton, especially one which was personally discovered."
