  1. Hi! My 6 year old is very interested in fossils so we took a trip to Rhode Island today to see if we could find anything at a shale beach. Might anyone be able to help ID the following? We aren’t sure and would love to be able to help him determine if he found something, and if so what it might be. My googling is coming up empty handed, and we just started our learning journey. Thanks so much!
  2. Hi Everyone, I'm very new to fossil hunting and was considering going down to Cory's Lane in RI as it's only about 40 minutes from me. I scoped the place out on Google Maps and have some questions for anyone that's hunted there. Do you need a permit to fossil collect in RI? It looks like you can't collect in state parks, but I don't think this area is a state park. I'm actually not even sure if it's town property or private? Google wasn't much help and I'm not really sure which department it would fall under to go through state websites. Are people actually
  3. I’m planning to head down to Cory’s Lane sometime soon when the weather clears up more, is it worth making the trip down there? If so, tips would be appreciated to find the better fossils! Thanks everyone

    Does anyone know anything about the possible hyolithid fossils found in Newport RI? Is it legal to collect over there?

    Carboniferous fossil ID

    I have this fossil here which at first glance I perceived to be some kind of seed, however I’m not sure. These are both from the same individual, just the positive and negative sides. It is just shy of half an inch long. It was found in the North Attleboro section of the Rhode Island formation

    What could this be?

    I’ve just found this on my property in upstate Rhode Island, and I’ve never found fossils here before. My first opinion was that it was a graptolite but I’m not sure what it could be, the host rock is full of these things
  7. Hello, usually I do all of my fossil hunting around Cory’s lane and other parts of that Formation, but I was wondering if there are any fossil sites near or around North Western Rhode Island.
  8. Hello everyone, this is Jonathan (Shin Alpha), I’m currently in college as a paleontology major and I’ve been busy with life as always, my apologies for my inactivity but due to my busy schedule, I’ve been largely inactive. I was able to find some plant fossils at a nearby outcrop in the Middletown/Cromwell area in CT. And I’ve since donated my finds to Central Connecticut state university geology department. that being said I’ve heard of a Paleozoic site in Newport, Rhode Island called “Cory’s lane“. I’d love to go there one of these days when I have the opportunity, but I don’t know too
  9. paleo.nath

    Any idea what this is?

    This fossil was found in north attleboro, part of the Rhode Island formation and the largest one is 6 inches in length.
  10. Hi Everyone, My 6yr old and I went down to Cory's Lane yesterday afternoon to do some fossil hunting. It was our first trip and I was less sure of what I was doing than I thought I would be, given how much reading I've been doing on here. We spent about an hour and a half there with some chisels and rock hammer, but honestly the shale was so loose and brittle that we could separate layers by hand in many places. We started by going through large chunks that had fallen/broken off the hill outcroppings, and then I dug down about 6" and found nearly black shale. We found a few pie

  12. Hi everyone, i will bE going to corys lane around 10 or 11 am tomorrow if anyone is interested in joining. I will also be free to go any other time for the next week plus if anyone is interested in joining.

    Cory's Lane Fossil

    IMG_0211.HEIC IMG_0212.HEIC Positive and negative imprint of a fossil found in the shale at Cory's Lane. Vaguely appears to be a pinecone but not sure. What does everyone thinks?
  14. I was able to stop at the beach on Corys Lane in Portsmouth Rhode Island for about an hour yesterday. The tide was too high to reach the area I prefer, but there was enough beach to expose a bit of gravel and beach-tumbled shale I could dig in. It was far from ideal and I didn't have much success but it was enjoyable nonetheless. My wife and I were staying only a half hour away but tide and time weren't on our side. Weather made for an interesting day or two as well, contributing to the spectacle along the coast on the way up to the site. In the past I've found

  18. I recently stumbled across a piece of shale and it looked like there might be a carboniferous fern fossilized in it. I am not sure so I would like someone with a more trained eye to weigh in and let me know if this is actually a fern or just a mark in the shale.

    A Strange Rhode Island Fern

    I was going through some material from Cory’s Lane, a Carboniferous fossil site in Rhode Island, when I noticed this fern. It didn’t really look like anything else I had and so I came here for some help. I’m very new to identifying fern fossils, so any help is greatly appreciated.
  21. In between all of the 4th of July weekend barbecues I was able to make it down to Cory's Lane, Rhode Island for a few hours of shale splitting. The day started out slow with only a few small plant imprints found, but I eventually managed to rip up a 5 foot slab of rock with a larger fern section on one end of it. After cutting the slab down to a little over a foot and a half in length this Pecopteris arborescens manages to go down as the largest fern I've found at this locality! It was a nice start to the long weekend, but the real win was the awesome weather .

    First Fossil Hunting Trip(s)

    A break in the bitter winter cold gave me a bit of spring fever this week. Thursday I had to venture to Newport for an errand and the weather was a balmy 30-ish and sunny, I decided to go check out this location. Tides were favorable for hitting the beach this week and I took advantage. With the major storm that came through recently, I figured there might be some new rock eroded down to search through. Armed with only my brick hammer, goggles and gloves, I scoured through pieces for about an hour. The rocks here were pretty well saturated, and those that did not outright disi

    Cory's Lane Outting

    It's a bit short notice, but I'm planning to do some shale splitting this Sunday 6/11/2017 at Corys Lane. The weather this weekend is looking good and low tide is at an opportune time on Sunday (about 3pm). If anyone is bored you should come say hi .
