Hardy County, WV (Trilobites)

October 14, 2018 (Sunday)

We have been invited by Bob Ertman of the Calvert Marine Museum Fossil Club to join them on a field collecting trip to Hardy County, WV. Trilobites! We'll return to an old favorite that is productive again, the roadside quarry at Lost River, near Wardensville (Jasper Burns locality 17). Early Middle Devonian (about 390 million years old); Needmore Formation.

I've attached a PDF of the chapter on this site from “Fossil Collecting in the Mid-Atlantic States”.

You may sign up for this trip as late as the Thursday before the trip. More information such as meeting time and place, etc. will be sent about a week before the trip.

Sign-up: Please contact Tom Pankratz at I’ll confirmation your registration with a return email. If you don’t receive confirmation, please re-contact me.
