Tate Annual Summer Conference

Well, Darn.  Due to concerns about Covid-19, we are canceling the 2020 Tate Conference.  We will be doing the same theme in 2021.  Stay Tuned.

Tate Conference 2021

Flippers and Fins: Marine Reptiles

The 2021 Tate Conference will take place at the Tate Geological Museum in Casper, Wyoming on June 4-6, 2021.   The theme this year is Flippers and Fins: Marine Reptiles.  We are planning a day of talks on Saturday with speakers from all over the country. The Friday field trip will be to the Sharon Springs Member of the Pierre Shale in eastern Wyoming, which is the primary vertebrate bearing portion of the Pierre Shale.  The Sunday field trip will be to the Jurassic Sundance Formation north of Casper, in search of ichthyosaur and plesiosaur remains.   More information and registration forms will be uploaded to this page as they become available.
