The Dry Dredgers, Inc is a not-for-profit 501c3 organization dedicated to the education and enjoyment of fossils. We regularly contribute both financially and through volunteer efforts to educational institutions in the field of geology and paleontology.

Here are some of the things we do.

  • Give up to $1000 to winners of the Dry Dredgers Paleontological Research Award. These are individuals conducting field research in geology and paleontology, particularly relating to the Cincinnati area.
  • Make an annual monetary contribution to the UC Caster Fund, which funds graduate research projects in geology and paleontology.
  • Donate books to the University of Cincinnati Geology Library.
  • Hold educational sessions on fossils with local schools, scouts and libraries.  
  • Donate fossils to local schools.
  • Provide funds as needed to museums and universities for special projects.
