What do we know about insect life during the Ice-Age? And how might it have changed? In the Page Museum's first-ever citizen science survey, we'll try to answer those questions by collecting insects and other invertebrates in the Pleistocene Garden, atrium and Hancock Park with Entomology Curator Brian Brown. Join in on fascinating discussions of insect and invertebrate life, and even learn how to hone your skills as an urban wildlife observer in your neighborhood during this Free event.
As part of our celebration we spent an afternoon with Trevor Valle, Lab Supervisor and asked him some fun questions about fossils. We'll also, be having an extended celebration on Saturday October 23! See you there! Learn more about National Fossil day from the National Park Service and how you can get invovled for the upcoming 2011 day.
