RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — The South Dakota School of Mines & Technology is hosting a conference on partnerships between federal and non-federal agencies managing fossils found on public lands.

The 2014 Conference on Fossil Resources runs through Thursday at the Rapid City school. It is attracting nearly 120 paleontological experts from around the world.

The university's Museum of Geology is a repository for federal, tribal and state. Museum associate director Sally Shelton says it's considered by several agencies to be a poster child for good professional relations between museums and agencies.

The conference will highlight the history of Fossil Cycad National Monument between Hot Springs and Edgemont. It's the only National Park Service unit ever decommissioned because its main resource was removed or stolen.
