  1. Beginner family friendly spots

    Looking for family friendly spots for VERY BEGINNERS in the Savannah area or Northeast Georgia. Thanks in advance!
  2. New Fossil Blog

    I've had a lot of friend requests on Facebook lately from my paleontology peers, but my personal page isn't really focused on fossils. So, yesterday I launched a new blog about my family's expeditions, details about our finds, and our experience sharing our discoveries and our passion with the community. Take a peek if you're inclined: https://www.facebook.com/I-Gotta-Rock-374330346479428/
  3. We live in Tulsa and I want to take a few day trips to look for fossils. We will be near Lake Gibson this coming weekend. I have read that there are good areas near the dam there but do not know where to look. Any help would be great! My kids are really excited about hunting! We have a lot to learn but might as well get started. Thanks!!!
  4. Purse State Park

    Hello, I was thinking of taking my kids to Purse State Park in Maryland in the coming week while the weather is still this warm, but I have not been there before and was wondering if jellyfish are as much of an issue when the water is warm as is the case in the Chesapeake Bay and places like Brownies Beach. I know very little about the Potomac and the water type and whether it is brackish enough to support jellyfish, hence my question :) Last thing I want is for a family outing looking for shark teeth to go south due to some floating menaces. Looking forward to getting to this location and sharing the finds with the forum. Thanks, Matt
  5. Corolla, NC Nearby for Kiddos

    So I will be heading to the Outer Banks specifically Corolla in a few months with a bunch of family. I would love to be able to introduce the Nieces and Nephews and my kiddos to Shark Teeth / Fossil hunting. Kids will be ranging in age from 8 yrs to 3 months old and about 10 of them. SO I am looking for some recommendations on spots that are closer to the northern Outer Banks ie Corolla... Key factors include: Distance/Time to arrive at location Easy of finding goodies Potential for bathrooms(not a deal breaker) Other attractions in the area. I have been recommended so far: Aurora Fossil Museum including Fossil pit Shark Tooth Island Top Sail Beach Onslow Beach (Acess is not a problem) South Beach Colonial Beach Westmorland State Park York River state park Matoaka Lake ( I have this listed I cannot find who told me thou) Colonial Park Fossil pit on Roanoke Island Currently Colonial Park Fossil Pit is winning due to fufilling most of the requirements... Could anyone please share their thought on these locations for the above described scenario? Does anyone one know how successful the Fossil Pit on Roanoke Island is? I did call the park and it is still there but hasn't got new material since last summer.(probably won't by the time I get there also) We don't need to find record breaking fossils tiny or common is ok as long as the success rate is pretty high. I can source plenty of hand tools for them to use and am currently building atleast 10 kiddo sized screens in 1/4 and 1/2 inch screen so they all will have one to use then take home. Can anyone recommend some kiddo specific gear I also might want to line up? Thanks!
  6. On the winter solstice, we took the family out for a 7-mile winter hike. Luckily it was winter in name only, as the temps got up to almost 50 degrees. We found a nice trail near Roanoke, Virginia, that took us into the Appalachians. As the kids are still excited about our giant fossil hunting trip out west this summer, I decided to pick a location where I knew there were fossils to be found. All I know is that these were Paleozoic formations, where 450mya it was swampy mud flats. So I could tell them we wouldn't be finding dinosaurs, but we might find some shells. So they enjoyed the hike, and spent tons of time looking around for fossils when our climbing reached the tops of the ridgeline. Then we had to tell them they'd be carrying these rocks with them for the next 6 miles.... 1st kid's finds: (large flat-ish shells) (these seemed to be the most common finds) (trace fossils?) (crinoid stems? - Near the 1" mark, top/bottom)
  7. Badlands Vacation

    We are planning a vacation in June to the Badlands area in South Dakota. I am wanting to do a fossil dig. Somewhere that is not expensive or and would like to keep what I find. Is this just a pipe dream? Where do I start? I am studying to be a middle and high school teacher in Kansas. I have always love fossils. I even have a T-Rex skeleton tattoo! I did contact the Badlands Park and they said you can keep up to 25 lbs as long as it is not a vertebrate. Please help! Thank you!
  8. Hi there - Quick question for everyone. My wife and I will be out West with our 10yr old triplets during the 2nd week of July, and we are looking for a multi-day dinosaur dig to join. Our family previously worked a "Citizen Paleontologist" event where we spent hours unpacking and cataloguing the summer's finds by the paleontologists at Virginia Tech, and the kids always have their eyes glued to the ground, trying to find cool rocks, arrowheads, and fossils. There's not much in our area, so we're indulging their interest this summer. While finding dinosaur bits would be great, I'm sure they'll love any era of fossil hunting. We think we'll be in the Wyoming/South Dakota/Montana area. Do you happen to know of any good, *affordable* programs/sites?
