Process of Paleontology
Saturday, April 29, 2017 | 9 am - 12 pm

Join us for a free educator workshop where we'll dig into the process of paleontology! We'll break down the way fossils are found, excavated, recorded, and researched. Then we'll venture out to our own excavation and research sites to discover what makes the La Brea Tar Pits so unique!
