May 2017 Field Trip – no monthly meeting

There will be a field trip this month. Please see details in the email sent to all society members by Tom Cockburn.

Unfortunately, there will be no monthly meeting on May 17 due to lack of a speaker.

Date:  Saturday, May 27th (note that this is NOT the Saturday following the Monthly Meeting)

Meeting Location and Time:  Helmcken Road Park and Ride; 07:00 AM)  Arrange car-pooling.

Safety and Equipment: 

  • Safety: We will be visiting an intertidal site, so you should expect to be walking on rocks that can be slippery and treacherous.
  • Equipment: At some sites the fossils are only found in concretions, so a good hammer or sledge and protective eyewear are required. At other sites the fossils are found in the rock, so a small chisel is helpful.
