Fossil Section Front Steps Dig
June 9, 2014

For the June Fossil Section meeting, members screened sand that GMS member Bonney Weathers donated. The Aurora location in South Carolina was a prime fossil collecting site until a few years ago when the site was closed. Bonney Weathers managed to save some of the sand and generously donated a bag to the club!

Right away we found coral and small shells. Then we started finding sharks' teeth. Charles Carter commented how nice it was to have the field trip come to us for a change, so Margaret thought we would we have barbecue afterwards.
