Meredith Fontana

Meredith is a paleontologist and outdoor educator with a lifelong passion and deep fascination for natural history, geology and prehistoric life. She grew up in Houston, Texas, dreaming about outdoor adventure, and left the big city at an early age to study natural science. She believes that people become their best selves while in nature, and that a genuine connection to the planet inspires action to protect it.

Early in her career, Meredith fell in love with the rich geologic history of the American Southwest and the beauty of the desert while working at Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona. Over the last 20 years, she has participated in paleontological field expeditions throughout Arizona, Colorado, Utah and Wyoming. She had the privilege of conducting her graduate research at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, where her work focused on elucidating the evolutionary relationships of an extinct group of lizards found in the Cretaceous Period sediments of Utah. A published researcher, Meredith feels most at home in the field, where she has discovered a variety of fossilized dinosaurs, crocodiles, amphibians and other extinct vertebrates.

In 2015, Meredith moved to Denver to work as a paleontological resource consultant throughout the Rocky Mountains. She eventually began guiding tours in Rocky Mountain National Park after realizing her passion for teaching and inspiring others to love and respect the natural world. This, along with her love of outdoor guiding and connecting with people, led Meredith to shift her career focus from academia to outdoor education. She holds both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in evolutionary biology, with a focus on paleontology, from the University of Texas at Austin and the George Washington University, respectively.

Meredith is an avid yogi and photographer, and when she's not out guiding, you will likely find her on one of Colorado’s beautiful trails with her sidekick canine, Lambchop.
