November Meeting – Sunday November 25, 2018

We will have a special guest speaker, the Burke Museum’s new Fossil Lab Manager, Kelsie Abrams. Kelsie comes to the Burke from the S.D. School of Mines & Technology where she presided over their fossil prep lab. She graduated from Fort Hays State University with a Master of Science Degree. She was a Field Assistant at The Sternberg Museum of Natural History and can tell Hell Creek, Montana stories with the best of them.

She likes dead things and cats.
