INVITATION TO JOIN
The NYPS meets on the third Sunday
of every month from September to May at the AMERICAN MUSEUM OF NATURAL
HISTORY in New York City.
The meetings feature lectures
and presentations by people active in the field of paleontology or related
areas. Subjects range from topics in evolution and paleoecology, to
the latest discoveries, to famous fossil localities, and more. The meetings
also provide an opportunity to meet with others who share such interests,
as well as to learn about fossil sites (both local and worldwide), field
techniques and fossil preparation.
The society also conducts
field trips in the Spring and Fall for members and their families. Members
also receive a monthly mailing of the society's award winning NEWSLETTER
containing announcements and summaries of the society's events, as well
as abstracts and brief articles on paleontologicial, geological and
associated subjects. The Society's Field Guides, some
of which have won awards for excellence, are also available free of
charge or at nominal cost to members. New members also receive
a copy of our Fossil Collecting PRIMER,
a useful source for finding, collecting, cataloging and curating
a fossil collection.
The membership year runs
from September through the following August. Individual Membership dues
are $15.00; a Family Membership costs $20.00.
