The maximum occupancy is currently 2 people per shift. All volunteers must wear a mask, sanitize upon arrival, and sign in and out of the lab for contact tracing. Entry to the lab is via the door by the elevators (knock for entry).

PALEO 400: Paleontology Field School

Spring is right around the corner and so is PALEO 400! The vertebrate palaeontology field school teaches a limited number of undergraduate students the techniques of fossil collection, curation, and analysis. Please note that the field component takes place in the spring and is accompanied by a research project component that extends into the fall term. This course will follow University of Alberta and Province of Alberta COVID regulations.
