HELP SAVE FOSSIL COLLECTING

  • New regulations are being proposed that will end nearly all amateur collecting of fossils on public land.
  • The Amateur and Professional Paleontology community is small. We all need to be heard.
  • This link shows you how you can CONSTRUCTIVELY comment on these proposed regulations to the BLM and BOR before the February 6th deadline.
