How do I register for my dig spots?

You will receive an email with the details on how priority registration will work once the Dig Supporter program is full. We will also post details on our social media accounts.

What rules apply to early registration dig spots?

All of the same rules that apply to the full registration day apply on the early registration day. See Dig Registration FAQ for full details.

Why only 150 early registration spots?

While we want to encourage people to support the public digs program, we don’t want to give away so many early registration spots that there are few sign up opportunities left on full  registration day.

Why not just charge a higher daily rate for the public fossil digs?

We are trying to keep the public fossil digs as affordable as possible so that everyone has a chance to attend. If we do not get enough people to sign up as Dig Supporters, then we will have to raise the daily cost in 2020.

How do I pay?

Payment is made through the Friends of ND Paleo here:

Does the donation cover my daily registration cost as well?

No. You will still need to pay the daily registration cost for each of your spots when you register for the digs.  The donation enables you to register before the general public.

Can I still register for more spots on the full registration day?

Yes. Everyone is welcome to participate in the full registration day, even if you already registered for some spots on the early registration day. Dig experience limitations still apply. See Dig Registration FAQ for details.

When do my benefits start?

All funds donated in 2021 will apply to 2022 memberships and benefits will begin January 1, 2022.
