Speaker Series 2015: “A Year in the Life of the Royal Tyrrell Museum’s Palaeontology Lab”
With hundreds of fossils being collected every year in Alberta, the preparation laboratory of the Royal Tyrrell Museum is a busy place. As fossils are being cleaned and sent away for study or display, new discoveries constantly roll in through the doors, which mean a palaeontology technician’s work is never done.
In her presentation, Dr. Lorna O’Brien, technician with the Royal Tyrrell Museum, showcases some of the exciting fossils that have been prepared in the past year. From fossils discovered in bonebed excavations to those exposed by the 2013 floods, be ready to be amazed at the rich palaeontological resources in the Museum.
The Royal Tyrrell Museum’s Speaker Series talks are free and held every Thursday from January to April 2015 at 11:00 a.m. in the Museum auditorium. Please visit the website for more information about upcoming speakers.
