Fossil Collecting expedition - Science Education Center of California
- Science Education Center of CaliforniaProudly Presents OurSummer Fossil ExpeditionSummer, 2011August 13th to August 19thDear Friends,The Science Education Center of California’s summer fossil expedition is less than two month away. There is still room for additional trip participants and your fees help to support our museum acquisitions and science museum on wheels program. Reservations can be made by e-mail krawitz@... or by phone. I can most easily be reached on my cell phone at (714) 292-6845.We offer seven days of stress-free travel through five states that includes some of the finest wonders of the natural world and an opportunity to add to your collection of natural history specimens. Our trip provides an opportunity to see Zion National Park and various geological formations. The collection of fish fossils at a private quarry in Wyoming’s Green River Formation is an added bonus.For the naturalist, collector or educator this is an expedition that will last a lifetime. The fossil-bearing area that we have access to is located on private land (fossil lake deposit), just west of Kemmerer, Wyoming. The site is at an elevation of 7,300 feet and the 100+ mile visibility provides a panoramic view of the ice clad High Uintas of Northern Utah. Here in the Northern Rockies, summers are generally cool and pleasant, with temperatures in the low to mid 70’s. This is a welcome relief from our typical summer heat.We should note that this trip may help satisfy professional growth hours necessary for maintaining a math or science credential..
