History of Pembina Paleontology

Established in 2021, Pebmina Paleontology was envisioned by Anita and Joseph Hatcher vertebrate paleontologists with over 25 years of excavating and research experience . Wanting to offer exceptional fossil dig experiences with research as a primary basis for the digs, Pembina Paleontology was formed. The company is based out of Manitoba's picturesque Pembina Valley! Fossil excursions centre around the Manitoba Escarpment primarily in the Cretaceous rocks dating to 80 million years ago. The company is named after the fossiliferous beds in the area known as the Pembina Member of the Pierre Shale.
