  1. Ice Age fossils

    The other day I decided to switch from the usual Paleozoic and look for Pleistocene fossils in the city of Chicago. Because of the pandemic, the streets were barren, so driving around was very easy. Here is Michigan Ave & Wacker Drive, a normally bustling, congested intersection.. empty and quiet. I wasn't expecting to find anything and have a nice drive. There were a couple areas I was interested in exploring, the first looked promising but revealed only glacial till/sand/clay. The second area I was surprised upon close inspection to find tiny fossil mollusks in the unearthed lacustrine glacial deposit. No saber toothed cats or mastodon teeth, of course, but still a nice surprise. I collected as many as could find in the small exposure. This would be Wisconsin Episode, Equality Formation, Dolton Member. I'm not sure what phase of glaciation Lake Michigan was at around this time, but from what I can glean from reports, this would be between 8,000- 26,000 BP, I believe. Amnicola sp. Pisidium sp. ? ? Group shot. The only literature I can find regarding Pleistocene mollusks deals with NW and central Illinois. Also had some fun with the sand under cross polarized light. The sand grains look more angular and jagged than local beach samples. After collecting the mollusks, I made my way up to Juneway beach on the far north side . It is a beach that has recently been completely engulfed by Lake Michigan and the city had to dump Silurian dolomite to thwart erosion. It is a modern "lost beach." Thanks for reading!
