As we wrap up Part One of the field, (we switch from paid workers back to all volunteers), we thought it would be nice to have some of the crew on the show and discuss some our finds and favorite moments, and give a nice shout out to the usual lunch spot!
Some of the crew show their love of KALM with their car stickers

Who doesn't like a good summer camp? This week we talk about some our favorite activities, moments, and memorable people from the 10 years of summer camps at the Gray Fossil Site.
Making slime, making their own exhibits, and tie-dying t-shirts.
Learning about trace fossils, and picking non Gray sediment
Making plaster casts
Making resin casts in the Gray prep lab
Finding fossils in the Spoil Piles
Surveying with Brian
Dry screening (which is no longer done on the site), and a tour of collections
Lastly, Edmund became the official poster child of the summer camps, with this picture!
This week's post we will be showing step by step the process we use to extract some of the more extensive bounders in the pits. The following pictures were taken on July 5th so you will get to see some of the most recent photos of the elephant pit.
