May 2014 Program:

"Fossils of the San Gabriel Valley"
Presented By:  Keith Krzywiec

Are you curious about fossils in Los Angeles? Do you know you can find various fossils in your own backyard?  Keith Krzywiec, the founder of West Coast Fossil Paleontology will present to us the fossils from the San Gabriel Valley and throughout the Los Angeles basin.  Many fossils are dated back from the mid to late Miocene Epoch.  The audience will have an opportunity to view his prize collection of more than 80 specimens including fish, plants, fossil wood, shell fish, whale fossils, etc. Slide projection and discussion include an introduction of geological history and identification of artifacts on display.
This is one program not to miss!
