Various geologic phenomena help to make La Brea Tar Pits & Museum a world-famous destination; perhaps the most dynamic being the asphalt (tar) itself. Thanks to this bone-protecting asphalt, the La Brea Tar Pits & Museum has the world’s largest collection of Ice Age bird fossils. Join us as we discuss these amazing creatures with our new Curator of Ornithology, Dr. Allison J. Schultz, who integrates research across evolutionary timescales to gain an understanding of the processes that produce the patterns of biodiversity.
