FIELD TRIP ANNOUNCEMENT

FOSSIL COLLECTING IN

MONTGOMERY & HERKIMER COUNTIES, N.Y. 

Saturday, October 27, 2018

            Our second field trip of the Fall season will be to two marine fossil sites from the Ordovician. Fossils that may be found include trilobites (Triarthrus, Isotelus, Greenops, cephalopods (very large), graptolites. etc.

            Please note that both of these sites are wet sites. Normally you can walk around without too much trouble; it depends on the creek and river level. In addition to your normal digging gear water shoes, waterproof boots, waders, and a change of clothes are suggested. At this time of the year it can be cold so please dress for your comfort,

The Field Trip Leader and Coordinator will be Mike Katsar

  Note, all those attending must be members of the New York Paleontological Society.
