Other Fossil Hunters In The State?


Recommended Posts

Wasn't sure where to post this but,

I've been trying to find other fellow fossil hunters in the state on the forums, but most of them haven't posted in a while, or didn't make many posts when they did.

Are there any other West Virginia members who visit the forums currently?

I can turn you on to some good places if you like. What are you finding? Plant or Marine ? What do you want to find? John

My brother lives in Vienna, WV. Last time I visited him, we hit some road cuts and found some decent fern fossil in some nice green colored shale. Nothing spectacular, but it was nice to get out. I would love to find some trilobites the next time I go visit him. Maybe he and I will head further north and east in search of some. Would be nice to have some contacts though for the area. I can bring some nice shark teeth for fossil trading if it helps motivate someone to show us around.

Can do Delo , let me know when you get close. I have'nt found a good trilo site yet, couple of heads is all I've managed. But I have more leads. What part of the state were the roadcuts in? Along 50? There is a nice marine site not far from your brother . And a great fern site near me. John Edited by dragonsfly

I don't remember the exact road John as my brother was just pointing in directions for me to drive. It wasn't more than 30min from Vienna though. The shale we were pulling the ferns from is green and some was very brittle and split easily while others took a lot more effort. Maybe by the time I head back that way you will have a trilobite location we can hit together. Thanks, Jason

Hi I live in Kanawha County WV.  I'm new to the fossil collecting.   I have found a fossil in Boone County WV that I need help with identifying.  Where do I go to post the pics of it.

You can start a thread in the Fossil ID subforum.
