Welcome

The Southern California Paleontological Society, founded January 5, 1960, is a non-profit organization which pledges itself to work in cooperation with scientific institutions and for the preservation of the fossil record. Participation is invited in the program to collect, preserve, and study paleontological material.

 


 

MEETINGS AND FIELD TRIPS

The Society meets monthly for an informative program about fossils and fossil collecting. At the meetings, members display fossils collected on the Society’s monthly field trips to fossil localities in Southern California and the Southwest.

Unless otherwise noted, Society meetings begin at 1:30 PM on the first Sunday of each month. Visitors are welcome. In August, there is no meeting.
