This fossil site is famous for the rare Echinoderm called
the Trammel family donated the land to the City of Sharonville, professional
and amateur Paleontologists uncovered a bonanza of these rare fossils
and now mark their dig spots for future science.
The site is rich in Brachiopods.
The rocks, like the one below, are covered in the Brachiopods, Rafinesquina,
Damanella and Zygospira.
The site is also great for trilobites. One secret for finding
the trilobite species Flexicalymene meeki
is to look for the straight-shaped bryozoans, like the one shown below. The
trilobites are in the same layer.
That's all! Sorry there isn't more. There are plenty of fossil finds shown for our next field trip, October 23, 2004.
