"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."
"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!"
"It's one frill after another!"
"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."
"It was the adventure of a lifetime!"
"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."
