Participate in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: help bring a dinosaur to life at UND! No prior experience or tools are necessary, and you do not need to be affiliated with UND to participate – all are welcome!

Paul Ullmann, paleontologist and assistant professor of Geology & Geological Engineering at UND, and his graduate student Skylor Booth are ready to begin working on cleaning and stabilizing the new dinosaur skeleton at UND. They are inviting everyone to be involved with this hands-on endevor!

The main project will be to clean and stabilize the bones of a duck-billed dinosaur called Edmontosaurus, which Dr. Ullmann’s research team brought back from Montana last Fall. They also have a portion of a Triceratops frill (the big sheet of bone that extends off the back of the head) that needs to be prepared, giving us two dinosaur species to work on.

Fossil Prep Sessions will be held weekly on Fridays from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., starting Friday, February 16.
