The MSSC is a scientific non-profit organization that actively supports the Pasadena City College Geology Department, its associated Dana Club,, and the Field Science Scholarship Fund. Support is also given to the San Bernardino County Museum of Natural History and Mindat.
The MSSC is affiliated with the California Federation of Mineralogical Societies and American Federation of Mineralogical Societies.
About the Program: Geology of Rancho La Brea/ LA Brea Tar Pits, Presented By Karin Rice
I’m a geologist by training with industry experience in environmental and engineering geology, and paleontological resource mitigation. I’m also a graduate student working on fault mapping in central Mongolia. I’ve always been drawn to natural history and fossils and have been lucky to have worked in paleontology since 2005: as a paleontological monitor on construction sites; as a fossil preparator in the Dino Lab at the Natural History Museum; and currently as an excavator for Project 23. Working on Project 23 is all about daily discovery. firstname.lastname@example.org
