Glopping in Pit 91 today! | Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits
It’s time to glop! We were back in Pit 91 last week to remove the continually seeping liquid asphalt.
At the George C. Page Museum (aka the La Brea Tar Pits), routine maintenance of Pit 91, the last remaining excavation site that is also still an active asphalt seep, is being carried out. Called “glopping,” it involves getting down and dirty in the tar to keep it and water runoff from reburying the bones in the pit.
