Partnership expands museum fossil collection and gives guests a front row seat

Cincinnati Museum Center partners with Elevation Science Institute on fossil digs, preparation and curation

Elevation Science has been leading public paleontology expeditions in Montana since 2017, including – coincidentally – at many of the same field sites previously worked by teams led by CMC paleontologists from 2000 to 2012. CMC teams working on these sites previously excavated a Diplodocus bonebed and an incredible array of Jurassic-age dinosaur fossils, including the 50-foot-long Galeamopus greeting guests at the entrance to its Dinosaur Hall in the Museum of Natural History & Science. These fossil sites are all located on public lands administered by the Bureau of Land Management.
