Agreement with Caltrans signed
Museum Scientist Ken Finger prepares a display featuring leaves found during construction on the fourth bore of the Caldecott Tunnel.
With Mark Goodwin serving as PI on the project, UCMP will hire a Senior Museum Scientist to manage the prep lab and supervise both graduate and undergraduate students to do fossil preparation and curation. Funding is also available for equipment, IT support, and the development of a website for public outreach and education related to the Caldecott Tunnel Project and the fossils collected. This new partnership between UCMP and Caltrans will increase our efforts to manage and preserve paleontological resources and California's fossil heritage across the state.
