Volunteer for palaeontology fieldwork this summer and discover fossils for yourself!

Excavating at the bonebed

Do you want to discover bones buried for millions of years in a real palaeontology quarry? The museum needs volunteers for fossil collection fieldwork at the Pipestone Creek bonebed from late June through the middle of August.


• The museum will provide all necessary tools and training
• Volunteers will be expected to be in attendance at the site from 8am to 4:30pm on each available day
• Preference will be given to volunteers who can work multiple consecutive days
• Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, able to work independently, able to lift up to 30 pounds, and able to traverse rough terrain.

If digging for fossils in one of the densest dinosaur graveyards in the world is something you have always wanted to experience, please provide your availability and request one of a limited number of volunteer spots via the form below.

If you have any questions, please contact the museum’s assistant curator and palaeontologist Derek Larson at dlarson@dinomuseum.ca

We would love to have you come help us discover new fossil finds!
