Former Interns And Volunteers
We appreciate all of the time that our former volunteers and interns have committed to as they have put their best foot forward in learning about all of the aspects involved with Paleontology, from lab work to customer relations, and so much more. We wish them all the best in their future endeavors after having fulfilled a well rounded hands on experience and opportunity.
Harrison Duran, volunteer field team leader and lab preparation intern, previously attended the undergraduate ecology and evolutionary biology program at the University of California Merced, having focused his research on Pleistocene megafauna. He served on the board of the San Joaquin Paleontology Foundation and also had served as curator at the Fossil Discovery Center of Madera County in Chowchilla, California. He currently attends Valley City State University.
Through Fossil Excavators, Harrison gained experience with paleontological excavation at several dig sites, including the excavation of a Triceratops skull.
More to come soon as we catch up from this past summer's excursions.
