OUR NORMAL PRESENTATIONS
In November and December, we will being sorting matrix for Dr. Jessica Theodor and Dr. Alex Dutchak from the University of Calgary. All of the fossils we find will be used to aid research into the Eocene of Saskatchewan. The matrix comes from the Cypress Hills Formation (Middle Eocene) and provides important insight into the northern fauna of this period.
All sessions will take place in room B213. There is a map available on line at the Mount Royal University website and showing parking available.
The organizer for this year's fossil sorting workshop is Risa Kawchuk.
No fee for this event. It is open to the public and it is a good family event.
