Geology Curator To Give Gallery Talk

Chris Sagebiel, curator of geology at the San Bernardino County Museum in Redlands, will give an informal gallery talk at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 5. The presentation will focus on the museum’s mineral collections and is free with museum general admission.

The gallery talk is part of a continuing series of presentations by museum staff to provide visitors with more insight about exhibits and current research at the museum.  In this talk, Sagebiel will discuss mineral specimens on display at the museum and the processes responsible for their creation, with a focus on igneous processes. He will also reveal plans for new mineral exhibits in the museum’s planned Hall of Geological Wonders.

After working with the Texas Memorial Museum, Texas Parks and Wildlife, and the Texas Archaeological Research Laboratory, he joined the staff at the San Bernardino County Museum as a collections manager in the geological sciences division and currently serves as the museum’s curator of geology. He is pursuing a Ph.D. at the University of California, Riverside in the Graduate Group in Genetics, Genomics, and Bioinformatics, studying an array of extinct mammals from South America.
