The Fossil Posse
When someone finds a fossil or something they think might be a fossil, they should call the Fossil Posse at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. The Posse is a group of trained volunteers that makes an initial site assessment. If their report is favorable, DMNS scientists visit the site, obtain permission from the landowners, and excavate the site. If you have a need for the Fossil Posse, call Cheryl DeGraff at 303-370-6473.
