Welcome to the Forum from Connecticut. :)

Keep in mind, the information at the website posted above is old, and may in many cases no longer be accurate.

It is a good place to start your research, but many sites listed may no longer be accessible.

Your best bet is to join a local rockhounding/mineral/fossil club.

This is the best way to get started in this hobby, meet people with similar interests in your area, and learn the ropes.

They also usually run field trips to quarries and places where you wouldn't gain access on your own.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Welcome to the forum. I agree with Tim. There are two fossil clubs in the Birmingham Area. www.alabamapaleo.org and bps-al.org. Please check out their websites, they have field trips where one can find fossils and is very educational.
