Program Director/Board President
Ron has enjoyed a 20 year career in museums and education. Since 2002, he has been leading adventures into the badlands of Montana. He loves creating unique experiences and watching the excitement when someone ID's their first fossil or having a real paleontologist answer their question.
"I especially enjoy cruising the canyons and coulees looking for the next "big find"...I know it's there"
