Regan Dunn Paul Harnick
    Shannon Romo


Regan Dunn graduated from Colorado State University in 1995 with a B.S. in biological sciences. Since then she has turned migratory and finds herself roaming the Colorado Plateau searching for the perfect job. Extremely versatile, she has worked in a toxicology lab doing biological research, guided river trips on many of Colorado’s rivers, and has taught skiing to unruly, squirming youngsters trapped in Steamboat Springs. Her travels have forced her to be mobile; she has lived in more than 13 places in the past 18 months and is thankful for her Subaru. Somewhere along this journey, her interests have turned toward paleontology and geology, and that led her to the Denver Basin Project.




Paul Harnick received his B.A. in geology with a minor in history from Oberlin College in Ohio in 1998. "Go west young man" someone said, and Paul’s days of quietly walking the streets of Ithaca, New York were over. Four days of driving a slow rambling path across the United States brought Paul to his destiny as an intern on the Denver Basin Project. Being the Appalachian Trail hiker, clog dancer, and guitar plucker that he is, Paul is not your typical New Yorker—he’s actually from Baltimore. Paul strives daily to get eight hours of sleep after being forced onto the first week of the graveyard shift. Among Paul’s aspirations are buying more fiddle music CDs and finding his life’s direction within the coming year.




Shannon Romo is a senior at the University of Colorado-Boulder where she is completing a B.S. in the Department of Evolutionary, Population, and Organismic Biology. She was minding her own business and volunteering in the paleobotany collection at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science when she was vacuumed up by the Denver Basin Project.
