MeargleSchmeargl posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsSo, for those who do not already know, I'm making a trip down to Macon, GA tommorow to attend the PAG (Paleontology Assn. of GA) to cover it for the school news magazine and to (obviously) participate in the meeting. Seeing that Macon wasn't very far from the fall line (the geologic barrier that separates the fossil-barren piedmont from the fossiliferous coastal plain), I looked up the county that Macon is in, Bibb county to see what the geological formations of the immediate area were. To my very pleasant surprise, I learned that the Tivola Limestone, a very fossiliferous late Eocene formation that produces very abundant Bryozoans, Echinoids and Bivalves among other forms of Eocene fauna, is exposed in multiple places in Bibb county and multiple surrounding counties in the area! I've seen some of the stuff that comes out of this formation in person at Tellus Science Museum and GA Southern's natural history museum, and it is absolutely mouth-watering! I really want to get a taste of Tivola pie, even if just a taste! Anyone know of a way I can find easily accessible exposures of the Tivola to quench my thirst for these Eocene gems? Thanks!
It was during my spring break 2 weeks ago that I first heard about the PAG. (Paleontology Association of Georgia) It was only started January last year, and have a few dozen members now. I'm definitely going to try and join in by the next meeting, May 5th. Any other Georgians interested? https://paleoassocga.weebly.com/
