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.
