June 15, 2001 - New Hanover Co, NC

This month BPS members took a long weekend, from June 15-17, driving to several quarries near Wilmington, North Carolina where Ashley had made arrangements to collect. There were numerous shells found at these sites, many in almost perfect condition. If one didn't know better, they could be mistaken for recent material.
