ABDSP Visitor Center Discovery Lab

Join the Paleontology Society at the ABDSP Visitor Center on December 8th at 10am to hear Mary Pat Weber’s talk on Stromatolites.

Approximately 10 years ago Mary Pat Weber became interested in stromatolites, a complex melding of biology, chemistry and geology, finding the topic both fascinating and frustrating.

Over the past few years she has traveled to many well-known stromatolite locations in the US, Canada, New Zealand and Australia.  Several specimens from her personal collection will be on display at the talk. 

Active in local mineral societies, Mary Pat Weber has won several blue ribbons and awards for her exhibit cases. 

Mary Pat Weber studied geology at Macalester College in MN and worked as an exploration geologist in Denver for Dames & Moore, an environmental consulting firm, and later in the petroleum industry.  After moving to California she completed an MBA at Pepperdine University and became president of a property management company.
