Out-of-state students to study forest fossils


Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

Eight Native American college students from Oklahoma and Texas will participate in a paleontological research program this summer on the Manti-La Sal National Forest. The expedition will set up camp at Willow Lake above Ferron and spend several days prospecting and collecting both micro-and macrofossil vertebrate remains and visiting published localities to collect additional data.

The project is intended to enhance the students' classroom and lab work in anatomy, paleontology and medicine. Local forest employees will introduce students to the management of natural and cultural resources.

The primary objective of this experience is to expose participants to career opportunities in the sciences.

The expedition is funded by the Whitten Burrage Law Firm of Oklahoma City, OK and is being led by Dr. Kent Smith, Associate Professor of Anatomy at Oklahoma State University, Center for Health Sciences and Affiliated Research Associate at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History.
