   The La Brea Tar Pits is one of the only fossil sites on earth that
   captures an entire ecosystem moving through time. With millions of datable
   fossils covering the last 50,000 years, and comprising everything from
   plants and insects to dire wolves and mammoths, this site offers an
   unparalleled opportunity to answer questions about long-term effects of
   climate change, human activities, and extinction on ecosystems. Students in
   this course will be trained in paleontological excavation, fossil
   preparation, and museum curation, and will learn how paleontological data
   are being used today to manage for future change. To apply please
