La Brea Webs - Community Science Meetup
La Brea Tar Pits & Museum: 5801 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90036
Help researchers at La Brea Tar Pits & Museum investigate ice age food webs! Register today!
Join us as we examine microfossils from Project 23. These remains of the Tar Pits' smallest victims (like plants, rodents, insects, and songbirds) can tell us a lot about the organisms that were living here tens of thousands of years ago while also helping us understand modern-day ecosystems. Community scientists are helping researchers sort and identify these microfossils, providing us with critical data about small mammals and plants.
During the program, you'll tour the lab and Project 23 excavation site, work with museum scientists to sort fossil material and identify what you've found, and learn how to use the iNaturalist mobile app.
Who: Families, teachers, adults
