January 26, 2019 Trip to Alabama

January 26 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm CST


This will be rescheduled for February if the weather is bad. Please check to make sure if field trip has been canceled before going.

The first NMGMS field trip for 2019 will be on Saturday Jan. 26th to collect Mississippian fossils from the Bangor Formation. We will be collecting fossils such as bryozoans, blastoids, brachiopods and corals.

If you are planning on making this field trip, please let me know and be sure that I have your cell phone number and that you have mine(see further down in this notice), so that I know we are all present before we caravan to the collecting site.

Bring small containers, cardboard flats and a bucket for carrying your fossils and gear. Newspapers, paper towels or aluminum foil is recommended for wrapping up those that are fragile. A rock hammer, chisel and something to pry with is also handy to have. Wear boots or shoes that can get wet or muddy and bring a hat, water, sunscreen, safety glasses, etc. A backpack or extra bucket is good to have, since we will be walking and carrying our gear with us.

Please let me know if you plan to attend. Nancy Roberts therockhoundlady@yahoo.com H: 731-689-5336 C: 731-727-5574
