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

"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!"

"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


"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."

"It was the adventure of a lifetime!"
