This site is well known for easy-to-find specimens of Monoplacophoran gastropods. We didn't find too many, actually. Here's a couple. 

Most of the gastropods we found were internal molds of run-of-the-mill snails. (next 4 pics).

Here's an interesting gastropod specimen. It's a partial on a rock, but it shows the inside surface of the snail's shell.

The kids on the field trip particularly liked finding Salamanders under the rocks on the site. Here are pictures of a couple of them.
