Next Field Trip: September 30

Meetings are held from September to May on the third Sunday of every month at 2:00 P.M. at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.  Meetings are open to the public free of charge (with museum admission).  Speakers and their topics, as well as any changes in the meeting schedule, will be announced beforehand in the Newsletter or on the Web Site.
In addition to our meetings, the Society offers field trips in the fall and spring to fossil sites both near and far. These are also announced beforehand in the Newsletter and the Web Site.  You must be a member to attend Society field trips.
The Newsletter is published monthly from September to May. It contains articles of interest in paleontology and related topics. The Society also publishes Field Guides to accompany most of the Society's field trips. New members also receive a copy of our Fossil Collecting Primer, a source for information on collecting and curating a fossil collection

The annual dues are $15.00 for an individual membership, or $20.00 for a family. Checks should be made payable to The New York Paleontological Society, and sent along with a membership application to the Society's address.
