Looks like lots of brachiopod fragments and I bet there are trilobite fragments also.

I haven't find any trilobites or Cephalon yet. Just corals, crinoids,and brachipods. But I want to find cephapods and trilobites to add to my fossil collection

Keep looking, if you can find whole fossils look there, you might find them easier.

You should be mostly Silurian there, so halosites and favosites (coral) and brachiopods should be the main species. Horn corals and gastropods mixed in. There is a twisting of the geologic strata, so the Ordovician comes up as you move west around Green Bay. There were a lot of bryozoa and crinoids that way.

I've never found a trilobite or cephalod in the area, so if you get one, be sure to post a picture.

There is a fellow in Milwaukee named Squalcorax- he is extremely well versed in eastern Wisconsin fossils. His comments are always very helpful.
