August 17th - Pelican Point - Rootbeer Onyx Calcite, Yellow to White Onyx Calcite, light Green Onyx Calcite, Wonderstone, Geothite/Limonite after Pyrite, and petrified seashell fossils
September 14 - Wamsutter Area - We will be going after Turritella agate. This material was incorrectly named decades ago when it was thought that the spiral-shaped gastropod (snail) fossils entombed within the stone were members of the marine Turritella genus. That was a mistake. Instead, the fossils are of the freshwater snail, Elimia tenera, a member of the Pleuroceridae family.
October 5-12 - Henry Mountains/Foy Wash Area - We will be starting at Star Springs, then going to Floy Wash. There is also an opportunity to go to the Moab rock show. We will be going to different areas for petrified wood, coprolite and agates.
