If you are interested in the finding fossils in the Louisville, Kentucky area or southern Indiana right across the Ohio River from that city check out this web page at the Falls of the Ohio State Park: http://www.fallsoftheohio.org/collecting.html

It documents 13 collecting sites where marine invertebrate fossils can be found from the Ordovician, Silurian, Devonian, and Mississippian periods.

Also if you get a chance check out the local geological group's (KYANA Geological Society) website there: http://www.kyanageo.org and in particular their Fossils of the Ohio Valley section showing about 300 different fossils found in that region.

I took Mike to a Mississippian site for some blastoids. We had a good time and the weather was great. I really enjoyed Mike's visit.

My 7 year old loves fossils and we'll be traveling from southern IL through the area along I64 through Louisville in a few weeks to visit the Ark Encounter in Williamsville.  Is there any place along the way to take him fossil hunting?  Last summer we visited Caspersen Beach FL to find fossilized shark's teeth and he loved it, and I think he'd be even more interested to find some of these types of fossils.  Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
