"Just wanted to let you know what a great experience I had this past week. Many thanks to John and Rebecca for a wonderful trip. Their knowledge and expertise is obvious and the time they took to teach and answer questions was much appreciated. I would highly recommend this program to anyone interested in Paleontology."

"Thank you so very much for organizing the 5 day dig. My daughter, Hana, came back to California more confident, grown up, and excited about paleontology. She had a wonderful time. Academic and personal growth were tremendous. The 4 hour car trip home from the airport was a non-stop narrative of the great time that she had. Joan, thank you for answering my many questions before
the trip. John and Rebecca, thank you for keeping an eye on my baby, and infecting her with your enthusiasm about science. Well done folks."


"Thanks again for a great experience with the dig, it was a high light of the trip for my little ones. One issue, the gnat bites were awful."
