DPS Ammonite posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsMy friend, Bill Ludlow, who is an advanced amateur paleontologist and volunteer evolution and human origins educator at the Arizona Museum of Natural History, (https://www.arizonamuseumofnaturalhistory.org/), presented a poster about Permian footprints and other fossils at the GSA convention in Phoenix in late September.
