EARTH MAGAZINE DONATES COLORADO COOK’S CULINARY SERVICES FOR
SDSM& T FIELD FOSSIL DIG IN BENNETT COUNTY JULY 13- 24
EARTH Magazine has donated the culinary services of a Colorado cook for the SDSM& T Museum of Geology field paleontology dig scheduled for July 13- 24 in Bennett County. Pat Monaco of Monaco’s Movable Meals, Wetmore, CO, will prepare the meals on- site at the “ Miocene Vertebrates of Flint Hill” field dig that will be directed by Dr. James E. Martin, Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology, and Carrie L. Herbel, Collections Manager and Preparator, for the SDSM& T Museum of Geology.
Pat Monaco, who is a registered nurse, is very active in the Garden Park, Colorado, paleontology group. During a recent Society of Vertebrate Paleontology ( SVP) fundraising auction to benefit the SVP’s education fund, Monaco offered to donate her culinary services for a field paleo dig. EARTH Magazine purchased Monaco’s catering services at the SVP auction and held a contest to determine who would receive Monaco’s catering services. Based on the results of that contest, EARTH Magazine decided to donate her field dig cooking package to the SDSM& T Museum of Geology. Monaco’s motto on her business card ~ “ Finer Field Foods and Fossiling” ~ underscores her passion for paleo field digs and cooking.
SDSM& T’s field paleontology program attracts students, teachers, fossil enthusiasts and others from across the nation each summer. The public can participate on a limited, space- available basis with the option of receiving academic credit. To register for SDSM& T field digs or obtain additional information, individuals should contact Dr. Philip Bjork, SDSM& T Museum of Geology, at 1- 800- 544- 8162, ext. 2467, or email: pbjork@ msmailgw. sdsmt. edu.
