Paleo Joe Fossil Dig – Alpena
Alpena dig – We will visit two sites the second one is a little bit of a hiker approximately 1/4 mile into the quarry and then however much you wish to walk. We will traverse the quarry going to several locations within the quarry to find varied fauna that can be found in different locations and horizons. We will find corals, brachiopods, stromatopora, crinoid stems and hopefully everyone will find a rare tentaculites as well. Again this is a HIKER you will need to be aware. Children under 7 years old need to be within arms reach of adults.
In Alpena we will dig in the fossil rich Potter Farm Formation and then the Rockport Limestone in Rockport Quarry.
