  1. Hello everyone, I found this forum While searching for locations for fossil hunting. I would be very thankful if any local fossil hunters could share some locations for a beginner. I’ve always been interested in fossils and geology and I’d like to make a fun hobby with it if possible. Thank you!!!!! reply to this post or shoot me a private email!!!!! Please thanks again!!!
  2. I wanted to start a little info dump for new collectors in Vancouver! It is usually met with quite the shock when local residents of this huge city learn that fossils lay within a few blocks of their area! This site is most likely Eocene to Oligocene in age. It contains a surprising diversity of well preserved plants but oddly no insects or vertebrate material has ever been described at the site... The site has shown records of hurricanes, forest fires, volcanic events and even a tsunami! It is interesting to note a mix of tropical plant life with more cool weathered types are found

    Excursion to Cory's Lane

    Hi everyone, I just want to start off the post by thanking @Bguild, @Fossildude19, and @Pagurus for their Cory's Lane post a while back, it really helped me with my trip there. Corys Lane is on a beach in Rhode Island, the view is absolutely incredible towards the end of the day. I visited towards the end of the day because of the tides. The area I was having the most luck at would be completely underwater by the time high tide came around. Speaking of which, I sampled different heights and areas of the locality, and I found that breaking the shale closest to the beach floor (and
  4. In 1980, a friend picked me up in Syracuse and took me to his house, which was about a 45 minutes drive, I think. I have no idea which direction he drove. I could see a creek deep below the valley while he drove near his house. His house was very near the electric line that went up a hill in the woods. In his hilly backyard, I found shell heaps all over the place. And just about every rock I turned over had fossils of leaves and plants. I kept some of them for a few years, but they are long gone now. Can someone tell me how old those fossils could be? And possible locat
  5. Icy? Well, compared to some areas in the US or Moscow, it had only a few degrees below zero (Celsius) last Sunday. The nights had about -10°C, the days about -2°C. This period lastet from last Friday to Monday. No snow at all and very, very dry air. The last two days we had about 0°C during the night and +10°C maximum during the day. Still very dry. So without any snow and clear, but "cold" weather, I checked out a few Miocene sites around St. Josef in western Styria, Austria. I have made a detailed report about the area more then a year ago here: Rocks and fossils wer

    Looking for family adventures

    I live in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania and I’m looking to take my family of 5 on some fossil hunting adventures. Does anyone know of any places near Kennett Square, Pennsylvania to go fossil hunting?

    Are these plant remains?

    Hello dear TFF members, I found these at the slope of the hill near Berat, Albania - are these plant fossils?
  8. Dear all, The IRIS Bibliothèque Numérique en Historie des Sciences (Université Lille 1) has made available high quality PDFs of René Zeiller's 1886-1888 monograph Bassin houiller de Valenciennes: description de la flore fossile. It is a wonderful piece of work, even for those who can't read French (simply superb atlas). Link to text volume Link to platen atlas volume Many more great books can be found at this wonderful website; it may be worth your while exploring it further. Kind regards, Tim
  9. Wishbone Hill by Sutton, Alaska is an old coal strip mine area so unfortunately a lot of trash, motorized recreation and shooting. Did I mention shooting? On the drive in will pass where trees have been shot so much they have fallen down, I should have taken a picture of that as for about an 1/8th of a mile 50 trees have been cut down by bullets. My wife, dogs and I did an eight mile round trip day hike first with the strip mine visible in the background. There is road access to the mine area and fossil collecting is allowed. Wishbone Hill with the notch in middle for

Chinese style hot dogs for breakfast.The "hot dog" was invented only in the last twenty years, and is a model of Chinese and Western combination:).I don't know if you've ever heard of steamed bread. The steamed bread is outside and the sausage is inside.It actually tastes ok.Then I drank some soy milk.Soybean milk is also a popular breakfast in China. Arriving at a plant fossil once found.It was a cloudy day and I was using telephoto, so it was a bit dark.The top of the hill is a temple, but I don't know if it's Buddhist or Taoist. The first discovery, perhaps,

  12. Hello TFF Members, I'm looking for a specimen of the Triassic plant - Dinophyton spinosus (not exactly the one from the picture of course, I just attached it to make the post more attractive) and I was wondering if there is anyone here willing to exchange it for some other plant material or other fossils.

  15. L.S., Thought it would be fun to share this "chance encounter" I had at a mineral show. The photograph below shows a slab of petrified wood from the Triassic of the Isalo II Fm. of Madagascar. When material from this locality is offered for sale (which happens often and in large quantities), it is usually labelled as "Araucarioxylon" or simply as "petrified wood" (where the latter may actually be better). While most of the wood indeed has an "Araucaria-like" anatomy (see Rössler et al. 2014 for a recent discussion on the nomenclature), I recently was lucky enough to "find" somethin

    Fossils from Kentucky

    I have recently found some very well preserved fossils that I collected in KY. I was really hoping to get some ids on these finds. I dug the plant fossil out of the side of a mountain where there was a falling fossilized tree these were on the bottom layer between the tree and the shale then the coal bed the egg shaped photos were found in the same area
  17. This rock weighing in at a hefty 2.5 kilo (shale ?) is completely surrounded by plant fossils that actually wrap around the rock itself. I.E. As to indicate that a pre-formed rock fell into the water and crushed the surrounding plants and caused them to fold around the surface while embeddeding itself in the environment that encourage fossil formation. I really don't have a clue as to its makeup or origin (Above speculative). It should should be noted that it was found on the ground surface after the flood where an adjacent embankment wall suffered severe weathering

    Was this rock underwater ?

    In our cottage in an island there are these big rocks that were dug up from the ground when we first built our house but there is one rock in particular that looks like it may have been underwater at some point and I sure am interested in the possibility of maybe finding some fossils, what's your opinion ?does it look like it may have been underwater? And could this area have fossils? Thanks

    PA fossil sites

    Hello everyone! Thanks for taking a minute to read this. Heading over to Maryland this weekend for some fossil hunting. I was hoping to get some guidance on some spots in PA. Which we are planning on heading to on Tuesday (June 18th). Would like to know if there are any areas where we could find some plant fossils. I know from doing some research the areas may be limited. It's our first time collecting plant fossils so any tips would be appreciated as well! Thank you!
  20. This afternoon I was able to shoot down to North Attleborough to spend a few hours digging through carboniferous aged rock outcrops. It was a nice change of pace from my usual spots down in Rhode Island! The plant fossils here also preserve much better. My favorite find of the day was a plate covered in various Neuropterids. I'll have to explore southern MA more.

    Mess of Things I need Identifyed

    Ok, I went looking for fossils in Renton, Washington state. I also went to Tukwila Washington (supposedly there are plant fossils here.) I found some things and maybe anyone could confirm if they are indeed fossils or something else. I'm not aiming for species of genus, the quality of these are not to that level, BUT if you have an idea, let me know. Thanks all. (I'm going to do kind of a dump here with all my findings.) Fig. A: Found in Green River Tukwila Washington. Not sure just picked the piece up about 1 1/2 inches long. Fig. B: Found in sedimentary rock in Renton Cedar rive
  23. L.S., To liberate storage space, I would like to offer the following plant fossils for trade. All specimens below come from the Late Carboniferous of the Piesberg quarry near Osnabrück (Germany). Scale on photographs in centimetres (1 inch = 2.54 cm). Specimens B, C, F and G show neuropterid fronds of various sizes (most likely Laveineopteris rarinervis). Note specimens B and G were recovered broken and have been glued/repaired. Specimen E is a large plate and shows reproductive structures of Calamites (E-1), a Laveineopteris frond (E-2), a strap-like Cordaites leaf, and some Annul

    Cordaites were very large leaves that resembled corn leaves, with parallel grooves running the length of the leaf.
