provides paleontological resource mitigation services for a
variety of projects including residential
developments, commercial developments, roadway
construction projects, and utility
Because paleontological resources are an important part
of our natural heritage, their destruction is considered
by state and federal directives to represent a negative environmental
impact. Fortunately, such negative impacts can be mitigated.
mitigation programs include on-site monitoring of active excavations,
discovery and recovery of exposed fossils, transportation of
recovered specimens to a professional preparation/conservation
laboratory, laboratory-based preparation
and curation of recovered fossils, and permanent storage
of curated fossils in regional repositories/museums where they
are available for present and future generations of citizens,
students, and professional scientists.
Our experience in the field makes us the perfect choice
for paleontological consulting services.
