  3. A few finds from this weekend. Fortunate enough to have a cottage on Lake Erie, fairly close to Rock Point Provincial Park which is known for it's exposed fossils of a 350 million year old coral reef. About half were found on the beach itself and the other half in the crushed gravel part of the driveway. I'd imagine the beach will keep yielding new finds after every storm, here is hoping for it anyway.
  4. Some small finds + some rocks I thought would be nice in the garden What do I have here??
  5. Fall promises to be spectacular in many ways. If you dream of colors, you will like the following. I like fossil hunting in the fall, although it's not really hunting, the fossils are underwater so it's more like fishing. Anyway, this is one of my many trips to this place, it's not very far and it allows me to go for a weekend nature walk. This is Ordovician, the site is not as beautiful or rich in fossils as the other sites we see in this forum, but it is rich in brachiopods, crinoids, bryozoans and gastropods. This time, I chose a theme to showcase my special finds of the day.
  6. Fossil Hunting in the Pas-de-Calais So last week was a lot of fun for me. Saturday afternoon we left home to go to northern France, the Pas-de-Calais. We first stopped in Belgium to visit some family, so we only arrived at our B&B near Wissant in the late Sunday afternoon. Our main goal was to go to that region in order to do, obviously, fossil-hunting! And that is what we did. I gotta say that I was (pleasantly) surprised with how things ended up! Read on to see what we found... Day 1: Wissant The evening of our arrival we were walking in the small city of Wis
  7. Are there any Santa Margarita fm fossil sites that are still open/able to be collected from in and around the SF Bay Area? I want to try and hunt from the formation but all the classic sites, like bean creek, are now closed for collecting.
  8. Hi Me and my son are new users here and are looking for places to fossil hunt in Alberta. We came across some posts of fossil hunting trips near a place called Lucky Strike, Alberta. We are trying to pinpoint the location of the site so we can plan for a trip there. However, we are having some trouble figuring out its location. Any help on where the site is will help immensely, and if you want to give us more specific information, feel free to message me. Thanks, Joy
  9. Hi! While I've also been fossil collecting, I am also volunteering for a local theatre company right now. This month, we will hopefully be leading a free acting program for youth in our community. Among my roles is writer/co-writer for the script that the youth will be performing. Ideas for what the script will be about have been scarce, but I do have one idea. I am thinking of making a vignette play (essentially an anthology of related scenes) about the lives of fossil hunters and palaeontologists. The scenes would be transcribed from various historical accounts and stories published in liter

    Amelia island

    Going on a trip to Amelia island in a couple weeks and I would love to know some tips/locations for fossil hunting there. Thanks in advance.
  11. Hello all! I have not been hunting for Fossils in a very long time. I am looking for the best places to go, even guide recommendations. I know you can go to the beaches, I have done this before yielding very little finds. I have had better luck diving for fossils off the coast. I live in Tampa Bay and I am willing to drive. I know you can go to Peace river, but not sure where to launch a kayak from. I have heard of the Bone Farm and I am seriously considering scheduling a half day hunt! Any help pointing me in the right direction is helpful! Thanks!
  12. Hello all! I'm looking to do some more fossil hunting this summer and I would love to find a good spot for trilobites. I am in western Maryland, and am willing to travel up to 2 hours. Most of the sites I've searched so far have been largely dominated by brachiopods and crinoids (which are still cool), but I really would love to find other species. If anyone has a good site which has trilobites (or anything else super cool) please let me know!! Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated! PS: I understand wanting to keep your spot secret, so if you don't want to
  13. I'm going to be taking a trip to the southwest (Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and possibly Texas) pretty soon, and I was wondering if anyone could give me some ideas as to where I could go fossil hunting. I'll provide the specific areas we'll be traveling to; I also previously lived in Colorado and have already found a few good sites, but would definitely be open to any other suggestions. Colorado seems pretty promising with some good fossil quarries (Florrisant Fossil Hunting and the Morrison Museum), and I grew up with the Denver Museum of Nature and Science as well as Dinosaur Ridge. I'll
  14. Does anyone know any good places to search for fossils in Louisiana?
  15. Hey, So I was planning on going on a fossil hunt this summer in Oklahoma. I thought "Black Cat Mountain" would be a great place to start but I can't find anything on how to contact the owner "Bob Carrol". I've been on their website which has a phone number but it says its no longer in use. If anyone has contact information like a email or phone number that would be great. Anyway thank you for reading this message and have a nice day. Sincerely, Carson Betancourt

    Millard County Run July 2021

    Hey gang! I figured I would throw out an openish invite. After my 2019 Millard county "scouting trip", I am preparing to head back for a slower, less intense exploration. I'll be skipping the pay-to-play sites this time around and focusing more on the lesser known and remote areas. The research has begun, and this time around it is going to be hardcore now that I am familiar with the terrain. I plan to be in the back country the week of July 18th. Base camp will be in the vicinity of Ibex/Fossil mountain at a little out of the way sit
  17. Hey everyone! Me and my family are thinking about taking a trip to the White River Formation. But we were wondering what some good places are to go fossil hunting? Thank you, -Micah
  18. Does anybody know of some decent hunting sites in California? I know of Latham shale, but I'm not sure if it's very beginner friendly.
  19. Anyone know of any spots I can go collecting? I’ve asked around a good bit but have found nothing of note. The only two places I know of is Hook head County Wexford which is definitely worth the trip and personally I have had some good finds there, the only other place I have found was a beach in County Cork beside spike island between Gobby beach and Lough Beg beach which as far as I’m aware is not known about by anyone really. So if you know of any decent places in Ireland let me know!
  20. Hello! I'm traveling to Colorado Springs this summer. And I'm hoping to do some fossil hunting within an hours drive of Colorado Springs. I'm a geology graduate from James Madison University in Virginia and I love to collect invertebrate fossils to share with the kids I teach. Anything from ammonites to crinoids to leaves. Any advice on where to look? Thanks!
  21. Hi everyone! Last weekend I took a couple of days off work for my birthday and I decided to visit a fossil spot in the ardennes which was recently recommended to me because there was a chance to find fossils of primitive plants as well as devonian fish (which is one of my main interests within the hobby). The site is relatively close by as well which was a huge plus as it only took an hour to drive. The fossils in this location date back to the late Devonian, Famennian to be exact (372.2 million years ago to 358.9 million years ago) After searching for a 45 mi
  22. I got the chance to go to the Oxford Clay twice over the last few days. I'm always looking for echinoderms at this site, and I prefer this one in winter when the vegetation has died back and I can spot lots of small, delicate detail. These are some if my favourite finds from the last few days.
  23. Hi everyone! Around 2 months ago on the 16th of october 2021 I went on a fossil hunting trip with the BVP to the stone quarry of Lompret in Belgium. https://www.paleontica.org/locations/fossil/654 The rocks in this quarry are Devonian in age and date back to the Frasnian (382.7 million years ago to 372.2 million years ago) with the finds mostly being from both the Neuville and Matagne Formations. According to Tom our excursion leader this quarry exists out of what used to be coral reefs and islands that formed around atolls. The fossils that you can find in this quar
  24. I didn't get out hunting much last year, still working on figuring out how to research and find spots, but a friend of mine invited me out to do some collecting at one of his spots up in Washington State. I took some family with me and we went out over the Winter break in mid December. Pretty cold but beautiful! We're mainly looking for concretions weathered out of the formation, but occasionally you find Callianopsis claws loose in the formation, usually very brittle and in poor condition. Lots of mollusks to be found as well as crustacean
  25. I know that Acro stuff is quite rare and hard to come by, but I was wondering what the best spots in Texas are to find such fossil material. I live in the state, so it would not be too much of an issue to travel to a spot or two to hunt for these theropod fossils. To sum it up, my question is: what are the best spots in Texas to legally hunt for and collect Acrocanthosaurus fossils/teeth (preferably without heavy duty tools or machinery)? If there are any, it would be much appreciated if you list the formation and location.
