Yesterday we had heavy rainfall in Charleston. Rainfall is of course one of the natural elements that erodes the material surrounding fossils. We know that some fossils become exposed to the earths surface due to rain. In Charleston, good areas to search after a hard rain are shores, river edges, creeks, gravel beds, and excavation sites. Dredge piles are also good search areas. There is a particular area on Folly Beach which has a significant amount of dredge material. It would be a good area to search today or tomorrow at low tide. I suggest you search here between 10am and 2pm (low tide). There is no guarantee one will find fossils but you will not find them if you do not get out and look. Happy hunting!
