Virtual Mind Walk: Searching for Fossils – Paleontological Sites of San Luis Obispo County

November 5, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm CDT

Take a virtual field trip locally, traveling eastward along Highway 58 in San Luis Obispo County. The route follows a geological transect spanning tens of millions of years, a ‘slice in time’. Reconstruct ancient shorelines of an inland sea and subsequent mountain uplift of the granitic and sedimentary rock formations along fault zones within the present day Coast Ranges. Examine shell fossils embedded in ancient marine sandstones and shale outcrops along the field trip route, and evidence of the Ice Age mega-fauna that roamed this area long ago.
