  1. Newbie here, is this a fossil?

    Hello all! I found this on a beach of lake Michigan in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA. I was wondering/hoping it might be a fossil, I joined this form hoping someone could identify it. It was found on 7/20 washed up on a beach of small stones. thank you in advance for any response.
  2. The Milwaukee Formation

    We are very pleased to announce the latest title that is currently in the early stages of preparation, so probably will not be ready for release until late 2018 or early 2019. The title is: Fossils of the Milwaukee Formation: A Middle Devonian Paleoecosystem from Wisconsin, USA by Kenneth (Chris) Gass. This will be a pictorial guide to the animals and plants that lived during the Devonian Period in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, over 380 million years ago, as told by the fossils they left behind. This heavily illustrated book (600 colour photos and line drawings) is supported by the author’s more than fifty years of fieldwork and research on the Milwaukee Formation. Being the first book written on the subject since 1911, it presents in one place a revealing update of its fossilized fauna and flora, and a comprehensive review of the discovery of the formation. It also points to significant insights that have resulted from studying its fossils, ranging from simply revealing new species to providing evidence used in various studies such as the one that attempted to counter the theory of Punctuated Equilibria.

  3. What's this? Found on a Lake Michigan Beach

    I found this rock and others like it. It feels sandy, has a few things like plant stems, leaves and seeds embedded and fossilized in it.
  4. I've been a member of the Milwaukee Public Museum for a few years now since I've had kids. That occasional school trip to the museum always fascinated me and brought wonders of the ancient world to my mind. It's almost unchanged since I was a boy, but I find new enjoyment from watching my children learn, explore, and imagine the way I did when I was younger. This museum isn't the greatest in the nation by any means, but it's the biggest in southeastern Wisconsin. Unfortunately Milwaukee isn't the industrial city it once was, and the museum doesn't get the funds to do much updating. The updating they do is more tailored at putting in new electronics instead of real geological treasures. The museum works the same as most, moving in evolutionary time for the fossils records. Most of the museum is dedicated to the Holocene epoch(probably 90%) instead of fossils, but I'll show some pictures from the more fossil heavy areas. They also have an online learning center called the Virtual Silurian Reef which can be accessed here... https://www.mpm.edu/content/collections/learn/reef/index.html I've found a lot of useful information about the area from this page such as that quarry in Racine I posted about in the Wisconsin thread. The plesiosaur and mammoth are at the entrance by the Imax and away from the main evolutionary trail.
  5. Wisconsin Fossil?

    Hello! I'm a new fossil enthusiast in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I find Silurian and Devonian crinoids, gastropods, brachiopods, bryozoans, and corals here, mostly on the Lake Michigan shore. I found the attached rock in Door County, Wisconsin, about 3 hours north of here, in the water off of a public beach. It doesn't resemble anything else I've ever found. I am very curious about it so I would be thrilled if anyone can identify it or provide possibilities. The first pic is a little blurry but should give an idea about size. The other two should be good closeups. Thanks!
  6. Milwaukee Fossils?

    Hey guys! I'm new to the forum and I was wondering if anyone was aware of any good sites in Milwaukee or even the surrounding counties? I've been here for a few years and a recent fossil trip this spring break re-sparked my love for fossils! Any advice or locations would be greatly apprecited!
