Pleistocene California Workshop

Description: The past is the key to the present. So what better way to become better-grounded ecologists and conservation biologists than visiting California during the Pleistocene! What did California look like 2.6 million years to 11,700 years ago? What plants and wild animals lived during that age? What megafauna roamed modern-day Los Angeles and San Francisco, and which of our familiar species are actually relics from this bygone era? Can understanding the ice age inform us as to what changes may come, and how we manage species in a rapidly shifting climate? Join Dr. Douglas Long, Eric Scott, Leya Collins, and other accomplished paleontologists on this journey through time, stopping at the Museum of Riverside, the Western Science Center, and La Brea Tarpits.
