Salvador Bastien works with the volunteer team in the earth sciences labs to bring new specimens in from the field and prepare them for the collections. Growing up in Wisconsin, he developed a passion for the natural world that brought him to the Colorado Front Range for his undergraduate studies. At Colorado College, he gained a deeper understanding of evolution, anatomy, and the history preserved in the rock formations of the American West. Interning for Grand Staircase project with the paleontology team piqued an interest in the fossil record that expanded to Salvador’s full-time involvement with the Museum since 2018.
