Sept. 5 - Pete Larson, Black Hills Institute of Geologic Research
YouTube Live Stream: Good Science in Commercial Paleontology
If you missed this Live Stream you can re-watch it here on YouTube
Pete Larson is probably one of the most well know dinosaur hunters in North America. No one has found more T. rex than Larson and crew. With the release of CNN Films Emmy winning, “Dinosaur 13” and appearances on Discovery Channel’s Dinosaur Hunters Pete Larson is quite the celebrity. Pete is one of the most down to earth people you’re ever going to meet. And while many of you are anxious to hear the story of “Sue”, Pete has moved on. I’ll tell you now, if you haven’t seen Dinosaur 13, you need to watch it. You need to know the triumph and heartbreak Pete has been through to get to this point in his career and research.
Pete will be discussing good science being conducted by commercial paleontologists. Fossils have been discovered and sold for almost a 1000 years. From Charles Sternberg to the Black Hills Institute, there is good science being collected in commercial paleontology.
This will mark Pete’s third presentation to TBFC, but his first through a virtual meeting. I can’t tell you how pleased we are to have Pete Larson back for this very special event.
