  1. First time back at the beach in a month or two.... was a little foggy. I've never seen a crab on the "turtleshell" rocks before, man I wish I could drag these back and put them in the garden. Help wanted - this bugger is HUGE... if you want it, I think we need a chopper or boat to extract it. Anytime out with the family is great! Pretty sure I've seen these in someone's youtube before!!
  2. If this is too unrelated to the forum please let me know but I'm hoping to create a 'dinosaur' themed area of the garden for my son or any other kids who visit. Planning on installed more dinosaur nests with eggs (rounded chalk cobbles) and also some dinosaur footprints. It's the creation of the footprints I'm looking some advice on. I'm hoping to create a series of small paving slabs with a Dino footprint on each one. Wondering the best way to go about it. Perhaps a postcrete or a concrete mix into a mould of some type? It would have to withstand the elements but doesn

    Greens Mill Run

    Hi all, I am taking the family on a road trip in July, and was hoping to make a fossil hunting stop along the way. I noticed a lot of posts about GMR, and read some info elsewhere online. Are there any areas from the access points (Elm St. or Spring Green parks) that are elementary-school-age child friendly (ie: shallow water, banks/bars that can be easily accessed). Most info I found says to expect hip-wader depth and swift water. Any info from locals would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  5. Back in about 1992 or 93and for many years later and still to this day I took the whole family fossil hunting. I always made it a priority to take the family on a fossil vacation. I use to do 7 out of state trips for fossil hunting every year with one of those for the family and always in the last week of june or first week of July. Always had to wait for the kids to get out of school. Used to do trips that last up to 3 weeks. Ha! Now a 4 or 5 day trip is about all I can do. The misses doesn't go with me nowadays but I cant help it, I need to get out even if I cant do much because of t
  6. Hi. This fall I will be teaching a paleontology class for 5th and 6th graders. We will meet once a week for 55 minutes. My plan is to teach up front for about ten minutes and then for the remainder of the class to be hands on activities. I have come up with some ideas, but would love some feedback on them and any other ideas that you all might have. The first session will be an introduction to paleontology, possibly including fieldwork methods, fossil prep, ichnology and trace fossils, adaptations, cladistics, plate tectonics, etc, while the second session will be more focused on the actual o
  7. Hi, I've just struck up a new interest in fossils (thanks Thermopolis, WY!) and I want to share it with my nephews (6 of them!). I know the fossil sorting kits you buy don't have the most exciting of specimens (Ammonite, brachiopod, clam, coprolite, coral, crinoid stem, crinoid star, dinosaur bone, gastropod, orthoceras, petrified wood, sea urchin, shark teeth, stingray teeth, and fish vertebrae), but I thought it would be a fun start if I bought a pack of them to make some DIY dig kits. The recipe I found for it is 1 part plaster of paris, 1 part water, 2 parts sand, though I'm open to other
  8. Hi friends! I'm new, I just stumbled across this forum and it's awesome content while searching for fossil localities near Charleston, South Carolina. I was hoping to get some tips on looking for shark teeth anywhere between Columbia and Charleston. I am taking a road trip from AZ with my family and thought it would be really great to stop and search for fossils along the way. I just can't seem to really pin down any nice spots to find some. I know fossil hunting grounds are a very hush-hush type of thing, but I was hoping that I could be pointed in the direction of somewhere where I might be
  9. Hi, The USGS water gauge for the Brazos River at Highway 21 (Whiskey Bridge) shows the water level at 35 ft. https://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/uv?site_no=08108700 Will any of the fossil beds be accessible with the water this high?
  10. I'd like to make an announcement that a new species of stegosaure has been found in Indiana... A young grad student has uncovered what appears to be a baby stegosaure that can glow in the dark! I'm sure this find will be published in all the big name magazines and that National Geographic Channel will cover down on this scientific discovery. It's great when you can share your hobby and teach your children

    Hunting with kids

    I've got a couple days off of work in mid June and asked my 4 and 8 year old if they want to do a mini fossil trip and they both of course said yes. I have the book Midwest gems, minerals, and fossils, but based on all the searches I've done on here, I'm guessing most of that is quite outdated. We live in Wisconsin and have done the mazon creek hunting as well as some roadcuts in Illinois, iowa, and minnesota. I was thinking indiana might be something new and fun and not too far away since I only have about 2 days. The st Leon roadcut is what got me interested, but I'm not sure wh
  12. I'm in Bend for the weekend looking for destanations to look for fossils please HELP!!!
  13. I am planning a trip with my 12-year-old grandson (and future paleontologist) to a dinosaur dig this summer, and would like to get some first hand advice on choosing a good outfit. We can go about anywhere in the U.S., several days to a week, but since we'll likely be flying we can't easily bring along much gear of our own. I've researched dozens of dig sites. Some sites were outdated, some sketchy on details, some had age limits or are already filled. PaleoAdventures and Hell Creek Fossils, Dinosaurs of the Western Slopes are possibilities, but I would welcome any comments on organization
  14. Just thought I'd log my rank beginner fossil hunting expeditions I'm taking with my kids this month! It'll help me be better at note taking, and taking pictures, too. My 5 and 7 year old girls are becoming pretty good little fossil hunters. Sometime in the last few months, it become more of a dedicated hobby rather than an accidental one ("oh look, a fossil!" while on a hike). They've always been interested in them (7 year old wants to be a paleontologist) but hikes specifically to find them have just begun. We are now going out about once a week, sometimes more. The kids spent muc
  15. I figured I'd share a little bit of information here. Since April of 2017, I've made a concerted effort to quench the insatiable fossil/dinosaur curiosity of my kids. Many of these field trips were actual fossil hunts themselves, but we've also gone to museums and other fossil displays. Here's a short description of some of them we've visited. I don't have a ton of pictures for the purpose of really illustrating what is available at each location...more pictures of my kiddos enjoying themselves! Dinosaur Valley State Park in Glen Rose, Texas I cannot recommend this plac

    A trip to the school

    A couple of months ago I was asked by Violet's teacher if I could do a presentation on fossils. In the uk a basic lesson on palaeontology is a part of the school curriculum. I took a range of fossils, both in type and era. Of course anything dinosaur was the most popular, in particular teeth. The kids were really interested and when it came to question time everyone's hands were raised. I was really surprised how much knowledge these 7 and 8 year olds had. Sadly time ran out too soon but I've been asked to return later in the year. I'm REALLY looking forward to going back.

    Corolla, NC Nearby for Kiddos

    So I will be heading to the Outer Banks specifically Corolla in a few months with a bunch of family. I would love to be able to introduce the Nieces and Nephews and my kiddos to Shark Teeth / Fossil hunting. Kids will be ranging in age from 8 yrs to 3 months old and about 10 of them. SO I am looking for some recommendations on spots that are closer to the northern Outer Banks ie Corolla... Key factors include: Distance/Time to arrive at location Easy of finding goodies Potential for bathrooms(not a deal breaker) Other attractions in the area.

    Peace River

    Good Morning! Newbie here, I am bringing my 4 and 5 year old grand sons down to Florida over Christmas break. I would like to take them to the Peace River for fossil hunting. Is there any kind of guided tour that could help. I have never been and honestly have no clue where to start.If anyone could point me in the right direction, I would be very grateful. Thanks in advance! Darlene
  20. When I go fossil hunting it is always with my 4 kids who are 7 years old and younger. I've been trying to find books and read posts on here about fossil hunting etiquette to make sure that we are following the rules of the land. I recently read the one post about people digging out massive holes on a creek bed, leading to people falling as well as devastation to the wildlife in the area. When I'm with my kids I always try to get them to hunt in a way that leaves the slope of the area natural so that one doesn't create unstable areas where people can get hurt. I understand sometimes that fossil
  21. Hello everyone, If you will be traveling through Montana this summer, you are invited to visit the Great Plains Dinosaur Museum in Malta, Montana, part of the Montana Dinosaur Trail. The museum has many great dinosaur exhibits including a real articulated Brachylophosaurus duck-billed dinosaur skeleton and the skull and neck of a new species of sauropod. We are also the home of the famous "Leonardo" dinosaur mummy specimen (currently on tour at the Children's Museum of Indianapolis, but we have an impressive 3-D printed replica and lots of informational displays). The Great Plains Dinosaur M
  22. Recently, I found myself visiting my family because they were camping not too far down the road at Edgar Evins State Park in DeKalb County, TN. I had heard that Center Hill Lake is a great place for fossils, so I was eager to see what I could find. My youngest sister who is ten years old (15 years age difference between us) was THRILLED to be A ) hanging out with big sister, and B ) going fossil hunting! I made sure she knew ahead of time that we could not actually *take* anything we found since we were in a state park. Honestly, I did invite everyone else come along too, but all the other gr

    A Meeting With The Mouse!

    The K-Boys have an upcoming appointment with Mickey. The oldest wants to hunt along the way from TX. The trilobites in the Marble Mountains sound fun, but I don't think we'll have time to get that way. Plus, I read on here somewhere that that area is now off limits. Are there any places along I-10 from Phoenix to Riverside that we can hit along the way? Any road-site stops (we tend to pull over quite a bit already)? We spend most of our lives in the lower cretaceous and are ready to see something different. Thanks in advance for your help.
