Eastern Iowa Paleontology Project

“Bringing DINOSAURS to Iowa”


Click here to learn more about becoming an EIPP Sponsor!

The Eastern Iowa Paleontology Project (EIPP) would not be possible without the support of its sponsors.  In particular, the first EIPP sponsors pooled their financial resources in the fall of 2005 to bring a special fossil to Iowa, the unprepared fossil skeleton of “Laura the Juvenile Duck-billed Dinosaur.”  Our current sponsors are listed below.

Young EIPP Sponsor poses after a job well done plaster jacketing a fossil duckbill femur in the badlands of SW North Dakota (July 2007).

Looking for a new or used vehicle?  Contact Alan Makabi of Cedar Rapids Toyota at 319/389-8368, or stop by the dealership just west of I-380 on Boyson Rd.  Click here to visit their web site.
