Carolina Paleontology Project


   Paleontology (the study of fossils) is a field that always has new areas to explore. There are always more fossils and environments to be discovered and studied. The purpose of the Carolina Paleontology Project is to use various fossil sites to explore the biology and environments in the southeastern U.S. through geologic time.

    The Carolina Paleontology project is funded by the Clemson University Creative Inquiry Project and is based at the Bob Campbell Geology Museum located in the South Carolina Botanical Gardens.
