Student with fossilFor decades, high school students from The Webb Schools have been an important component of the Alf Museum's research program. Beginning with Ray Alf's leadership in the early days of the museum, and continuing today under the direction of Don Lofgren and Andy Farke, Webb students have conducted groundbreaking paleontological research, presented their work at national conferences, and published their findings in peer-reviewed publications.

Alumni of the Webb/Alf Program
Some notable alumni who went on to careers in paleontology include:

Current Projects
Our students are currently studying:

  • Proboscidean specimens from the Miocene-aged Barstow Formation of southern California
  • Dinosaur eggshell, theropod teeth, and hadrosaurs from the Upper Cretaceous Kaiparowits Formation of southern Utah
  • Fossil mammals from the North Horn Formation of Utah
  • Taxonomic composition and taphonomy of Eocene mammals from the Renova Formation of Montana

Student Publications
Current and former Webb students have co-authored numerous publications and abstracts over the years. Here's a sampling of some recent publications (student contributors in bold):
