Did you know that Barnum Brown, the paleontologist credited with discovering a T. rex in the Hell Creek formation in the 1800s, was a KU alumnus? Help us send a modern-day team of KU scientists and students to follow in his footsteps.
Paleontology is often putting together the pieces of a puzzle. We already have part of this puzzle solved: scientists have 15 percent of the T. rex. Help us chip away at this puzzle and bring home more of this amazing fossil.
Imagine being a student who gets to go to Montana to bring back parts of a T. rex. Your gift of $100 or more will give them a field experience of excavating and preparing fossil material that they won’t forget.
During the 2015 expedition, we hired someone to use heavy equipment to remove the top of the hill, revealing the fossil layer. Help us dig deeper and bring the T. rex fossil back to KU with your gift of $100 or more.
