Nebraska Fossil Expedition

Nebraska Fossil Expedition

Calling all curious 11-14 year olds with a passion for science!

The Bishop Museum of Science and Nature is partnering with the Toomey Foundation for the Natural Sciences to offer students ages 11 to 14 the opportunity to participate in a week-long educational and paleontological expedition to the Nebraska Badlands!

During this week-long expedition — scheduled for June 4-12 — students (and their guardians) will have the opportunity to participate in paleontological field work with guidance from experts. We’ll also spend time exploring surrounding educational sites such as Mount Rushmore, Custer National Park, Wind Cave and local museums (specific sites to be determined).

The number of open spots is limited to eight pairs of students and guardians.

To apply, review the expedition materials and complete the application procedures outlined, then email it to Christine Michael, Co-curator of Learning, at by February 15, 2022.
