A Year of Yes: My childhood dream of digging for fossils is about to come true

quarry_picWhen I was a kid, I wanted to be a paleontologist and dig for dinosaurs. Life didn’t work out that way for me, but I’m about to get the next best thing. On what I’m sure will be a sunny Friday, I’m going to visit the Edelman Fossil Park outside of Philly (my old stomping grounds) and spend time with Dr. Ken Lacovara, a scientist and author whose work I greatly admire. And along with a whole lot of kids, I’m going to roll up my sleeves and get down in the dirt in search of that glorious gateway drug to science: fossils. I can’t wait!
