Several years ago, I found a brachiopod and some rugose coral embedded in a couple pebbles while beach combing at Cape Henlopen State Park. I found another few wandering inland at the park. A few years later, I found one at Bowers Beach. This summer I've made it a project to see how much I can find and how far north it goes. My guess is all the way up the river, but I'll stick to DE for now. This week's stop was Battery Park in New Castle. Sure enough, among the chunks of industrial slag and other miscellaneous rubble were several distinct corals. Also found at bowers beach were two pieces of petrified wood. The marine fossils are all from the Paleozoic, but which era I haven't narrowed down yet. The DE Geological Survey doesn't seem to have any published documentation on it. The wood is pleistocene. It was found on Bowers Beach and most likely washed down from a known area of southern New Castle County/Northern Kent County. Next stop: an off-the-beaten-path access point for the Delaware River in Claymont, about as far north as I can get and still be in Delaware!
