Mission: Our mission is to inspire people to passionately explore and engage with our planet and its natural treasures by creating transformative educational experiences in paleontology.

What are you fundraising for this year?

We are fundraising for our Dare to Venture Fund which will expand our programming for the Red Lodge community! From new paleontology and natural sciences experiences to bigger and better local outreach events, we’ve got big plans and we’re hoping you’ll support them!

What impact will funds have on your mission and community?

Exploration is a core tenant of our mission, and, with this fund, we will be able to take our citizen-scientists beyond our current limits and let them experience the joy of discovery!

If you participated last year, what did you use the funds for?

Last year’s funds helped us buy a UTV that will be going on it’s very first expedition this summer!

Fundraising Goal: $3,000
