Each year, GeoScience Adventures, a public outreach organization comprising an instructional staff of professional geoscientists, offers teacher workshops that carry both recertification and graduate credits. Since the year 2000, these summer workshops are conducted as a series of three-day short courses that explore the geological and paleontological record of northern Wyoming.
Our Educational Workshops are developed and led by members of our , assisted by visiting instructors who are respected geoscientists with many years of experience in their respective fields of expertise. Our 2013 instructors included several noted professional scientists/educators including; Dr. Erik Kvale, Dr. Michael Brett-Surman, Dr. Tom Holtz, Dr. Carol Hotton, Dr. Nina Baghai-Riding, and Kim Sowder, GISP. We believe that we have the best instructional team of its type and our workshop participants agree.
The workshops are open to everyone that is interested in spending three days in the field learning geological and paleontological concepts from professional scientists. NOTE: Participants should be physically able to spend three days in the field in rugged open terrain, carrying their own water and supplies – backpacks and good hiking shoes recommended. See workshops .
Our educational workshops utilize the extensive geological and dinosaur fossil resources of Shell Valley in Wyoming’s Bighorn Basin, along with the nearby Big Horn Mountains, as “living classrooms” in order to increase the participant’s knowledge of earth science. These workshops will visit world-class dinosaur fossil-bearing localities with scientists who have done extensive research on these deposits. The basin is home to no less than four major dinosaur digsites, plus well over 1,000 documented ancient mammal and plant scientific collection sites.
The majority of the field activities are conducted near Shell, Wyoming, which is ideally located 15 miles east of Greybull, Wyoming, 60 miles east of Cody, Wyoming, and is only a two hour drive from the east entrance to Yellowstone National Park.
We invite you to browse through this site to learn more about:
- Why paleontologists call Shell Valley the “Real Jurassic Playground”
- The multi-layered geology and natural resources of Wyoming’s Bighorn Basin
A vacation in the Bighorn Basin that includes one or more of our workshops would allow you to pursue “Lifelong Learning” while enjoying the area’s natural resources.
