La Brea Tar Pit has special homeschool day field trips and the theme for this special event is Bugs and Botany. What do insect fossils teach us about the Ice Age environment? How do plant remains get preserved in asphalt? Spend this Homeschool Day with two often under-appreciated groups of organisms: insects and plants! We think you’ll find these resilient Ice Age survivors surprisingly captivating and incredibly significant to the study of Pleistocene Los Angeles! Explore active excavation sites, see real fossils up close, and watch paleontologists in action — all in the heart of Los Angeles! The best part? Museum admission is free for homeschoolers. Pre-registration is not required. Click here to download tips on parking, resources, and more.
