The Bighorn Basin Paleontological Institute is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to paleontology and earth science research, education, and outreach. We harness the universal appeal of dinosaurs and paleontology to engage people of all interest levels and backgrounds to promote the earth and natural sciences.

This year, we are fundraising for a new, bigger trailer that will help us haul more fossils out for the public to see!

Last year, thanks to you, we raised funds for a pop-up museum to help bring fun science outreach and dinosaur fossils to the public, especially in places that you’d least expect them!

Fundraising Goal: $3,500

A group of kids from one of our outreach programs, Dinosaur Treasures in Your Backyard, that was funded in part by donations from the Fun Run.
