Join us in the Red Rock Canyon Amphitheater (behind the Visitor Center) to hear women in science speak on their field of work, connection to the land, and how science has influenced their lives. Today’s event will feature: Dr. Lauren Parry, Paleontologist at National Park Service.
“Dr. Ranger Lauren” is a paleontologist and Park Ranger at Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument in the upper Las Vegas Wash, Nevada. Throughout her career and schooling, she has conducted fieldwork on Nevada’s public lands, managed fossil museum collections, researched the lives of extinct mammoths, and is now helping to build a new fossil park from the ground up. Lauren earned her doctorate in paleontology from UNLV in 2020 and enjoys using her background and expertise to collaborate with other scientists, artists, educators, and planners. Learning is her passion, and Lauren hopes to connect the community to park science and place-based history.
