The group lodges in Fossil for the evening, where we’ll meet staff from the Fossil Museum and take in a lecture by Dick Pugh, renowned meteorite scientist from Cascadia Meteorite Lab. The following day, will have a short hike through the spectacular Painted Hills, led by tour guides from the Paleo Lands Institute, an organization dedicated to leading education programs on the geology of eastern Oregon."
