Undergrads dig for dinos in Alberta's badlands

Love this program. Classroom learning - no matter how intense - cannot give you the type of experience you gain in the lab or field.

Fourth-year EEB student Elizabeth Benner started a separate research project with the Evans lab since she went to the Badlands last summer, but she never expected to be exposed to so many resources.

“I’m meeting all these different people who are influential in the field and being able to get these opportunities while I’m studying,” she says. “It’s been amazing to come here and be able to get a head start on immersing myself in paleontology.”
