  1. I will be going to Utah in a few weeks. I will be spending about a month there and will have time to get out and fossil hunt. Are there areas of the Green River Formation that are open to fossil collection?
  2. Okay guys, I’ve managed to get some cheap air tickets (£20) to Milan from the UK. Airbnb was good to me too at £25 a night. Anyone know of any sites, museums or shops in the area?
  3. Protected sites in Manitoba?

    Hi all, A few times now I have found fossils in Manitoba (posted a few times here for ID as well). My question here is the following: Is it legal to bring home fossils that can be found on beaches? Mine were found in an area used to access a winter road. That road is no longer in use but quite a large selection of them can be found as loose rocks on that same beach. If one doesn't take them home, they will be destroyed over time. I'm not trying to take the discussion to whether it is better for the fossils or not, simply to see if it is legal to take them. A second question is : Is there a list of protected sites in Manitoba, and if so, where can I find it? Thanks in advance.
  4. Washington->Louisiana

    Hey I am looking into going to LSU for college and i was looking into any good sites nearby the campus, anyone know of any?
  5. Florida panhandle

    I am going to be at Eglin AFB near Pensacola, FL soon. Any info on collecting in that area would be appreciated. If you have any tips please PM me. Thanks.
  6. Heading to WV This Weekend

    We are heading down to Athens, WV this weekend to visit some friends who just moved there from the midwest. None of the four of us knows the area. Anyone have any suggestions for a reasonably short road trip to do some hunting in their vicinity?
  7. New to N.C. (Roanoke Rapids)

    We are looking for sites nearby, within 10 miles. Long time N.J. hunter.
  8. do you guys know any fossil sites in Michigan, I live in the lansing area and places like rockport state park are a bit far. Do you guys know any places closer that I could go to look for a high quantity of fossils and I wouldn't have to drive very far?
  9. So I have a few days off duty and I'm planning on making a long weekend out of it. I'm starting tomorrow in Aurora, NC at the museum's spoil piles. This will be a first, so any suggestions are appreciated. Saturday I will be going to the Charelston, SC area to try my luck again. I was looking for advice in this area. I have done a ton of research with little success. I don't expect someone to give exact locations to their honey holes but advise would be great! Also anyone interested in joining would be welcome. Finally, a few days of free diving the bone yard in Venice, FL.... That's home! Any advice, suggestions, or anyone interested in joining please chime in. I'll post pics as it happens. Thanks in advance, Justin

    I'm going to be in San Diego for a couple days next month and would love to hit a site for a bit of collecting, IF I can talk my wife into breaking away from the beach and the sea lions for a few minutes. Can anyone give me some insight into possible locations? Any help is greatly appreciated.
  13. guided trips

    IMHO, if you set up a date and time to meet someone who is taking their time and effort to take you around to collecting sites in their area, and you can not make the appointed meeting at least have the courtesy to call them and let them know you won't be there.
  14. Here are a few localities I am aware of though I havent been to most of them -Beverly Beach Oregon, easy hunting and beach combing very soft matrix, marine fossils some whale bones etc I have visited this site personally and it is very good hunting, you never leave empty handed. -Veronia Oregon, havent been yet but I have heard the hunting is good mostly marine fossils. -Fossil Oregon, behind Wheeler High school, mostly plants -Lincoln Creek Washington Havent been but I have read it has concretions and plant fossils along with some marine fossils. -Sandy River Oregon, I have read old geologic surveys that describe plant fossils in the shale, but I have not explored myself, yet. -Prineville Oregon, I have visited this myself but didnt find any fossils, only thunder eggs, but the area is still supposed to hold marine fossils. -Punchbowl Falls Oregon, old geologic surveys described plant fossils found when trails were being cut out and also in steep embankments. -Bainbridge Island Washington, I have read others discussing about localities in the general area, but I have no specific details on where. This is all I know of, feel free to share or correct me on any sites! Also if anyone knows of any localities by Portland or SW Washington please post them!
  15. Hello! I'm heading out to spend a few days in the DC Area visiting with family, specifically around Potomac, MD. I have never been there, so I've been trying to collect info about the geology in the area, and fossil sites. I've found some Maryland sites on the forums (along the Potomac River, and the Calvert Cliffs). Most of the maps I can see locate spots farther south than Potomac, so I was wondering if it was worth looking along the river that far north? Thanks, any hints would be welcome!
  16. Maine fossil hunting info?

    Over the summer we are doing a trip to Maine and I would like to go fossil hunting one day while there but I have no spots and very little information. I would appreciate anyone that can tell me a place to go and the method to finding fossils there
  17. Bratislava Slovakia

    Off to Bratslavia, Slovakia in June. Anyone know of any sites to dig, shops/museums to visit? A trip down the Danube to Vienna is on the cards with an overnight stay too. Thanks!
  18. NE PA Road trip help

    Heading out to the Poconos next week - probably around Tobyhana S.P. and the Lehigh Valley Rail Trail. Anyone know of any good spots in the area?
  19. Hello fellow forum members, it's Trevor. I am deciding between attending two different colleges, one is near Cleveland, Ohio and the other is near Lewisberg, PA. Fossiling is a large part of my decision. I already know some fern sites in PA and PA is closer to Maryland and Jersey so that's a plus. Can anyone tell me the fossil situation of Ohio or surrounding areas.
  20. So, I have this idea -- maybe it's nuts. What if we, as a community, started a census of sorts for road cuts. Every time I pass an attractive shale road cut, I think to myself, "I should really stop there and see what sorts of fossils are there." Then I got to thinking, there ought to be some way to share standardized information on what is in any given site. So here's what I propose: Every time I stop by a road cut, I will rummage around in the scree for exactly 30 minutes. Then I will post an exact location (drop a Google maps pin, maybe), and precisely what I find. That way, the next time a Forum member goes down that road, he can know what sorts of fossils are to be found. Because I will look for exactly 30 minutes, it will also give some estimate of fossil density. (Sites where I find ten fossils in 30 minutes are likely more fossiliferous than sites where I find only one.) Over time, this road cut census will give clues about where to look for new, undiscovered sites. Any thoughts on this approach? Would this be useful to other amateurs? Are there improvements to be made in my standardized approach? Would anyone else like to join me in this endeavor? Just think how useful it would be to know before your road trip which areas have fossils in nearby road cuts... Cheers, Matt
  21. Where can we drive to near coastal VA?

    Living in Chesapeake VA and moved out here a few years ago. I have had no luck finding any sites out here. Beaches seem to be barren and I don't have a canoe or a jet-ski to go exploring new shores. I don't mind driving out of the area but the last few times I tried to drive out somewhere the sites where no longer public or gone completely. I've got the itch to go hunting again but I can't seem to find any up to date resources on places I can go and collect legally. Anyone got any suggestions? Again, legally

  23. Norway

    I am going to visit family in Bomlo Norge in May. Has anyone done any collecting in Norge? It's an island just south of Bergen. Can anyone recommend any stops? I know theres an old gold mine there. Any chance of some amber? prehistoric or viking age finds are all good for me.
  24. Georgia trilo site: Age, anyone?

    So I just recently found a new trilobite site in GA only an hour and a half drive away from where I live. I plan on going there this weekend (tomorrow), but I do not know the exact age. I have currently been unsuccessful at finding a reliable geological map so far. Anyone have an idea on the age? Thanks!
