Laboratory Materials:

The following fossil kit (to be used with lab 5) must also be purchased to complete the laboratory component of the course. Contact SWES at 605-677-5281 to arrange delivery of a fossil kit. Do this early in the semester, as it can take a couple of weeks for USD to acquire these kits.
