Pictured above is the Plesiosaur cast located in Museum of Natural History & Science at Cincinnati Museum Center. The cast represents a skeleton in excellent condition, with all the bones accounted for and in a wonderful position for exhibition. Fossils at Mother's Day Site our not found in such a simple way. They are unearthed in a "Pick Up Stick" fashion with pieces missing here and there.
Pictured below is our new Plesiosaur Site. Each green marker indicates bone and our crew is uncovering more each day. We are still in the early stages of uncovering this area and hope to collect the fossils before we leave. We have also found ammonites. Their spiral shape is undeniable and they are sprinkled in pockets on the local farm.
We are very lucky to have two sites running at once and it is a true credit to our participants and volunteers who have worked tirelessly to assist us. Thanks to all!
