UMass celebrates opening of Osborne Fossil Collection

Cast of Eubrontes fossil (3-toe'd dinosaur footprint) with (living) human hand resting upon it.

Last year, the department of Geosciences received a generous donation of a fossil collection from Lawrence Osborn. Graduate students Adriane Lam, Serena Dameron, and Professor Mark Leckie volunteered to organize and display the collection in Morrill 243A, adjacent to the Rausch Mineral Gallery.  U-Mass highlighed their work in a recent article, with Adriane discussing her experience in working with the fossil collectionon the Time Scavengers blog.
