Hey folks, we are happy to announce our first PaleoBlitz, scheduled for March 18-20, 2016, at the University of Florida! Just check our calendar for further information. We look forward to creating an interesting and fruitful Blitz for you and hope to make some great new connections. Initially we have planned to invite 12 individuals from different paleontology clubs/organizations to participate in this weekend-long workshop, but because of the overwhelming interest we are thinking about planning multiple events with different topics. So now it’s your turn to help us with ideas. What would you like to see and learn at future Blitzes?
The coming event itself will give you hands-on exposure to the museum curation process, identification, preparation (cleaning), curation (database entry), and documentation (photographing) of fossils collected from the Belgrade Mine in North Carolina. Additionally, there will be a tour of the paleontology collections at the Florida Museum of Natural History and a tour of the famed Hubbell collection. Finally, there will be an optional field trip to local Gainesville creeks to collect fossils.
