Israel: The Heritage and The Hope
November 1 to 13, 2014

Experience the Holy Land’s unmatched history, archaeological treasures and religious cultures. Visit Jerusalem’s iconic sites—Dome of the Rock, Temple Mount, Al Aqsa, Western Wall, Arab markets. The group will also tour the biblical sites of Caesarea, Mt. Carmel, Galilee, Capernaum, Bethlehem, Nazareth, Mount of Olives and Gethsemane. You will witness the strikingly majestic deserts, rolling hills and picturesque coastlines, and visit the fortress of Masada built by King Herod and Qumran, where the “Dead Sea Scrolls” were transcribed and preserved in caves. Exclusive lectures with journalists, writers and experts are part of the itinerary. An optional extension is available to Jordan to visit the ancient metropolis of Petra, cut into the desert’s red sandstone cliffs.

Paleo Field Experience: Excavating the Texas Red Beds
April 2 - 6, 2014

Legendary paleontologist Dr. Bob Bakker and David Temple are leading a small group to discover and excavate Permian-aged fossils. The excavation site has yielded the Museum’s fin-backed dimetrodon, boomerang-headed salamander diplocaulus, and prehistoric xenocanthus shark —and there are many more discoveries yet to be made. Participants will meet in Vernon, Texas.

Jurassic Dinosaurs in Europe
Coming Soon

Visit famous Jurassic locales of Germany and Switzerland—including active private quarries not open to the public—and have the opportunity to keep fossils that you find. These sites have yielded the famous archaeopteryx and many of the specimens collected for HMNS’ new Morian Hall of Paleontology. The group will also tour “sauriermuseums” with local expert paleontologists.

More information will be available soon.
