How to help
Whether you’re a researcher studying the quarry or an interested fossil enthusiast, we can use your help.
There’s still far more work to be done cataloging the fossils found at the quarry, reconstructing the taxa they represent, and piecing together the world they lived in.
Here are a few ways you can contribute:
Make a donation
We don’t yet have an official method for doing this set up, but we will gladly accept monetary support for our work. Funds go to travel for photographing the fossils in the various locations where they’re stored, as well as web design, illustration, and time spent researching, consolidating, organizing and making sense of scientific research going all the way back to the 1800s.
Submit your own images
If you have scientific illustrations of one of the taxa you found here, we’d be thrilled to be able to use it. If you went to a Community Dig Day and drew your own interpretation of what a mosasaur fighting a giant sea urchin would have looked like, well, that would be awesome, too.
Share your research
Have you done academic research on the Hornerstown formation, glauconite, Cretaceous or Paleogene marine ecosystems, the K/Pg boundary, or any of the taxa found here? We’d love to see it!
Have another idea? Let us know!
Whatever could it be?? Now we’re curious! It’s like a Cretaceous Christmas!
