THE CREW


   Adam Schroeder, M.A.      Field Director/Owner     I’m a Teacher and Paleontologist currently working in Kansas. I have been working in the Hell Creek Formation of North Dakota and Montana since early 2009.  We can offer experience and knowledge that can only come from years of hard work in the Field. My research focuses on biological extinction and recovery across the K-Pg boundary in the Hell Creek Formation. We are all looking forward to our next paleontological adventure!                                                                                      Email: hcfossils@gmail.com           Phone: 785-443-0982

   James Reed, P.G.      Field Director/Owner     I’m an Engineering Geologist and Paleontologist currently working in the Black Hills of South Dakota. In addition to dinosaurs, I study stratigraphy, (the sequences of rock layers). During my undergrad I studied the sedimentary stratigraphy of ejecta layers from the 2nd largest meteor on Earth, aka the Sudbury Impact. I'm continuing "sed-strat" related research in the Cretaceous, as well as assisting students with their own on the K-Pg boundary in the Hell Creek Formation.        Email: hcfossils@gmail.com       Phone: (507) 313-6954
