Scott Richardson: An Accidental Paleontologist
September 28 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
This program will condense Scott’s 16 years of working in the Kaiparowits Plateau with Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument paleotologist, Dr. Alan Titus, as he shares a myriad of stories, photos, finds and excavations.
Scott has a B.S. in geological engineering and has discovered several new species of dinosaurs in the last 15 years. He worked in mineral exploration and environmental management before volunteering at the Museum of Northern Arizona in paleontology. Since meeting Dr. Titus in 2002, he has been involved in all aspects of paleontology at the Monument. His discoveries include Kosmoceratops richardsoni, Lythronax argestes and other Cretaceous animals.
