Angele's Project at Ghost Ranch
Wednesday, September 26

This years Angels' Project will be held at the Florence Hawley Ellis Museum of Anthropology and the Ruth Hall Museum of Paleontology at Ghost Ranch Education & Retreat Center, Abiquiu, New Mexico

Details: Do you like fossils and archaeological materials? Then please join us for this one-day storage improvement project at the onsite museums at Ghost Ranch! This will be the first time that the museums have the opportunity to work with professional conservators. The work will include preparing fitted, padded storage containers for individual fossils. Ghost Ranch is the top dinosaur fossil site in the world for the Triassic period and the Ruth Hall Paleontology Museum highlights dinosaurs found on-site. The size of this museum belies the importance of its collection. Gretchen Gürtler with assistance from Axel Hungerbeuhler, both from the Mesalands Dinosaur Museum in Tucumcari, NM, are will lead the project, with Susan Barger as Angels' Coordinator.

Due to the limited size of the working spaces at the museums, participation will be limited to 15 Angels.

Angels will receive a 50% discount on Ghost Ranch accommodation Tuesday night.

This Angels Project is generously supported by an FAIC grant and Ghost Ranch.
