Katherine Palmer Award

Katherine Palmer Award

Each year, PRI recognizes an individual who is not a professional paleontologist for the excellence of their contributions to the field. This award is named for PRI's second Director, Katherine Palmer, who was an avid supporter of avocational paleontology. The award is presented at the annual Fossil Expo of the Mid-America Paleontology Society in Macomb, Illinois. Click here to visit the Mid-America Paleontology Society homepage.
