Fossil Shack / American Fossil

Fossil Shack is a family-owned and operated business located in Salem Utah. Fossil Shack was founded by the Sorensen Family and has been providing quality fossils to individuals, museums, and educational institutions for decades. Seth has also consulted for Popular Science and other publications.

Managed by Seth and Rachelle Sorensen, Fossil shack has become the world's most trusted name in fossils and they want to pass on their passion for collecting. Their belief is that by providing quality fossils at low prices, they can promote the fossil collecting hobby to other families and instill in others a great respect for life and the amazing story of Mother Earth.

Seth is a consultant for Popular Science in the area of fossils and fossil collecting. Fossil Shack is a strong supporter of the Natural Sciences and works closely with a number of universities, as well as a number of museums. They have donated many scientifically significant pieces to local institutions for study, as well as adding to the instructional collections of a number of small colleges and public schools. We have worked with the American Museum of Natural History, Fossil Butte National Monument, The Bone Museum, Lee Kong Chian museum, Utah Valley University, and others.
