CNCC Offers Paleontology Experience

CNCC-LOGO-400CNCC will be offering paleontology field experiences beginning in the summer of 2015 as one part of a two-part paleontology experience. Each field experience session will be two weeks long and can be taken for college credit. During this time, students will be staying on the CNCC Rangely campus and traveling daily to the dig site where they will work alongside professional paleontologists from around the country to excavate dinosaur remains. The two fieldwork sessions are scheduled from June 8th through June 19th and June 22nd through July 3rd. Students will work excavating a dinosaur found by CNCC faculty. At the conclusion of the field experience, the fossils will be transported to the new federal fossil repository at the CNCC Craig Campus. The fossils will be curated and prepared by students enrolled in the paleontology lab techniques course as the second piece of the CNCC paleontology experience. Summer field experience courses have limited availability and fill quickly. Scholarships may be available. For more information on how to apply, contact the Program Coordinator: or visit
