Paleontology on Shelikof Strait

Filling in the Earth's history

Most of the team from our 2021 expedition, Fossils of the Lost Coast, reboard the Endeavour in Chignik on a fossil survey east up the peninsula and across the strait to Kodiak Island. We're especially looking for plant fossils, ammonites, and desmos! It's also prime brown bear season. Scheduled for August 2022.

Scheduled for September 2023.
