    Should we discuss the iDigBio ADBC summit in one of our next meetings? I realize only Sean and I are funded on iDigBio, but it will held at UF/FLMNH and it appears that many of the summit events are related to VP, including collections tours, a fossil hunting field trip, and national fossil day.

    • Yes we need to discuss this because we are holding events at National Fossil Day and will need volunteers like during Can You Dig It? If I remember correctly Michelle, both you and @vperez will be manning the table on Saturday during NFD?

      • Yup, I intend to be there. In previous years, vert and invert paleo have tabled together. I need to check if they’re doing their own thing or collaborating with us again. So we may have some volunteers from IP as well.

        • Just talked to Roger. Sounds like IP will have their own tables, so ideally we would have at least 4 people from vert paleo willing to volunteer. I think they want to have the sandbox dig as well, so the setup will likely be the same or similar to Can You Dig it? I know we aren’t having a lab meeting tomorrow because Bruce is out of town, but if people are around we can talk about this tomorrow.

          • Yes, I’ve talked to Roger and we’ve discussed how to get enough volunteers from VP, IVP, and Paleobotany. I’m aware that we’ll have both the dig box and the screen wash and will be pulling fossils for the activities in the next couple of weeks. Thanks for checking with Roger as well.
