After a long, strange pandemic year in which very little travel or fieldwork could happen, I was finally able to get out to Colorado with the NASA ferns team to do fieldwork for our project. We visited several sites around southern Colorado and northern New Mexico where the K-Pg boundary is actually visible and can be excavated. This was the first time all five of the project PIs were actually together, and several of us had never met in person before! It was a great trip and I look forward to more time in the field with these amazing scientists.

Our group: PIs Jacquelyn Gill (University of Maine), Ellen Currano (University of Wyoming), Regan Dunn (LA Natural History Museum), Jarmila Pittermann (UC Santa Cruz), Emily Sessa (University of Florida), and undergrad researcher extraordinaire Derek Godoy
