The Dry Dredgers is an association of amateur geologists dedicated to the knowledge and enjoyment of fossils. The association was founded in 1942 and continues to bring together those interested in ancient life. Its aim is to stimulate interest in geology, to encourage the collection and identification of fossils, and to participate in field trips and exhibitions. The club is affiliated with the University of Cincinnati Geology Department , and annually awards the Paleo Research Award to support the study of paleontology.
Members of the Dry Dredgers are individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and levels of expertise, sharing a common and sincere interest in fossils. Average yearly membership is about 200 families.
Meetings are held generally at 8 p.m. on the fourth Friday of every month from September to June. At these meetings, projects are discussed, field trips planned, lectures presented and fossils appreciated.
All meetings are held in Room 201 Braunstein Hall on the University of Cincinnati campus. Field trips take place monthly in the autumn and spring, usually within 100 miles of Cincinnati.
Membership is open to all interested individuals and families. Family membership is $12/one year, $22/two years, and $30.00/three. If you would like to join, print and mail our MEMBERSHIP FORM.
