May 3, 2025 - Pennsylvanian - Jefferson County, AL

Two hours of hunting time was allowed on this trip. We covered a lot of literal ground and found lots of fossils and then some! Three BPS members enjoyed the hunt because there were so many Carboniferous Period fossils to find! 3D Calamites, Stigmaria and fern fossils were abundant and what a day it was! It was an overcast day with a cool breeze, so the temperature was pleasant. I found a pile of shale and found lots of fern fossils, large slabs I had to say no to because I have no room to store them. Even though it was a short day, we were happy with our finds and hope to make it back to the site soon!
