29 October to 1 November, 2009. Red Rock Canyon State Park, Mojave Desert, CA
It's that time of the year again.
Enthusiastic kids and adults joined a 14-member museum staff for a beautiful weekend in Red Rock Canyon State Park for fossil prospecting.
This year was more productive than our last trip, in part thanks to winter rainfall in the park during the past season. We found remains ranging from mole to beardogs, from pronghorns to camels.
We will post specimens from this past trip as they are prepped and curated in the LACM Vertebrate Paleontology Collection!
