Hello From Baltimore : )

Recommended Posts

Hoping to converse with people who have common interests! I've been collecting fossils in Chesapeake Beach, MD for about 6 years now, and I'm still quite the amateur. I use my finds both for educational purposes (I work in public education) and to add to my personal collection. I'd love to visit other collection sites where I can look for something other than marine fossils, preferably within the Baltimore/D.C. area. Any suggestions?

I am. Saw the newspaper article when it first opened, but I haven't visited yet. Is it true that you can't keep anything you find there?

Yes, personal collecting is not permitted, but there are opportunities to help (and learn from) the pros.

From watching or getting information from pros you might just learn how to collect a specimen that you could destroy by using the wrong techniques

edit: Sadly I know this from experience.
