Group Description

Have you ever wondered...
•What did Southern California look like 12 million years ago?
•What animals lived in the area and why did some of them become extinct?

Paleontologists at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, along with help from the public, are piecing together this puzzle by studying the rich vertebrate fossils and unique geology of the Western Mojave Desert. For over 12 years, the Museum has sponsored family-oriented paleontology trips to Red Rock Canyon State Park, two hours north of Los Angeles. Led by Museum scientists and educators, these trips offer hands-on experience searching for, collecting, and studying fossils in the field. Here you will find photo’s taken by Museum Staff and past participants. Enjoy!
