See You at There!
Imagine a wild landscape of grassland, forests and erupting volcanoes... add a robust population of mammals including camels, rhinos, ancestral elephants and bone-crushing dogs -- such is the scene during the Late Miocene in what we know as present-day California.
Join Ranger/Naturalist Greg Francek as he shares his account of the discovery of a significant northern California fossil deposit and the ongoing collaborative study being conducted by East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD), CSU Chico and a cadre of elite scientists.
Greg Francek is a Ranger/Naturalist who is employed by EBMUD in the Mokelumne Watershed. As a patrol ranger, Greg’s work includes public safety duties such as regulation enforcement, wildland firefighting, Search & Rescue and medical response. His discovery of the Mokelumne fossil site has launched an intensive on-the-job education in paleontology with a team of highly accomplished scientists. Away from his professional career, Greg has numerous interests and outdoor pursuits.
All are welcome. Arrive early for refreshments, and if you have ideas for future lecture topics, please let us know! For more information on the other projects by the Angels Camp Museum Foundation, visit our campaign page.
