Ocean Experience Fossil Lab - Passengers Through Time

Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County/La Brea Tar Pits Museum

Discover as a paleontologist how Los Angeles was milions of years ago

In NHMLA's Ocean Experience lab, students will become passengers through time as they analyze fossils to uncover what the Los Angeles basis was like millions of years ago. Students will begin by observing fossil specimens unearthed at specific locations in Southern California. Using NHMLA fossil collections, students will use comparative analysis to infer what the ecosystem was like when these animals were living.
