expeditions at the field museum™ is generously funded by The Negaunee Foundation.
The 2008 Expedition to the Green River Formation was supported by The Field Museum and the University of Chicago Graham School. Dr. Lance Grande’s research program on fossil and living fishes has benefited greatly from the financial support of the National Science Foundation and from a grant from the National Geographic Society.
Richard Lewis and his family own the ranch on which the quarry is found, and James E. Tynsky and his family operate this quarry. Dr. Grande and The Field Museum team would like to thank them all for permission to camp and work in this quarry during this and past expeditions.
expeditions at the field museum™ would also like to thank the Shedd Aquarium for access to their collections.
