Paleontological Surveys

main othersvcs

We provide Paleotological surveys now required for federal properties.

Under House Resolution, 146, The Omnibus Public Lands Act of 2009 Title VI enacted the Paleontological Resources Preservation Act to protect fossils found on Federal Lands. Full Text of Bill

A Paleontological Resource is defined as any fossilized remains, traces, or imprints of organisms, preserved in or on our Earth's crust, that are of paleontological interest and that provide information about the history of life on Earth.

We research and survey areas to determine whether fossil resources are present and to evaluate their significance.
