BRING "DARING TO DIG" TO LIFE

PRI has been developing Daring to Dig since 2013 and plans to do much more. The traveling exhibition will be hosted at various museums across the United States, and PRI staff will be improving this website, creating educational resources for classroom teachers and museum staff, writing a book on the subject, growing our collection of paleontologist interviews, and more. 

For this project, the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) has awarded PRI a federal grant of $137,419 as part of the Museums for America program. This is a matching grant; PRI will need to raise the same amount of funds to move forward with the project.

We are asking for your help to raise the remaining funds required to make this meaningful project a reality! Please consider making a donation to PRI in support of Daring to Dig. For more information, contact PRI’s development department at Development@priweb.org, or call 607-273-6623 x11.
