We are about to leave in a few minutes (from lake Wallenpaupack where we currently are) , but before we left we helped a neighbor (who was absent) reposition a dock for when they let out water from the dam. He had used rocks from the location of the house as a border for a walkway, and I found this obvious fossil. It's Devonian, Catskills formation shohola member. I found a few other worse ones. First fossils I know of from Lake Wallenpaupack. Any ideas on what type of plant?
Hello everyone, I'm at Lake Wallenpaupack in northeastern PA. I had never really thought to look for fossils here, but I took a look around and very soon at arriving here I found this in a large boulder. It is Pennsylvania bluestone (sandstone) of the shohola member of the Catskill formation, Devonian in age. I believe freshwater deposits? Fossils are scarce but not unknown in this rock, I was thinking a trace fossil of some sort. Could be created by human activity, not sure. If new pictures are needed, they may be provided.
I'm heading up to Lake Wallenpaupack, PA soon, and I was wondering if anyone knew about some fossil sites. I've heard of things in beltsville park, anyone have further information on that? I found this pike county geologic map, and it looks like milford is in the mahantango formation, so I'll look round there. Any info about the other formations as to their fossiliferousness? And what about Wayne county? Any information is greatly appreciated, feel free to PM me!
