Paleontology of the Pinto Basin of Joshua Tree National Park

Friday, Oct 18, 2013 7:00p to 8:00p

Imagine the Pinto Basin as a swampland! During part of the Pleistocene era, the Mojave was a much cooler and a less arid environment. Portions of what are now vast expanses of desert were likely shorelines of lakes, streams and marshes, with plentiful vegetation and animal life. The Campbells, of 29 Palms, documented vertebrate fossil finds in the Pinto Basin in 1935. To celebrate National Fossil Day on October 16, Cindy Stoddard will discuss fossil discoveries in the Pinto Basin of JTNP.
