Fossil Hunting at the Penn Dixie Fossil Park – Crinoids, Corals, Trilobites and More!!!

#rockhounding #thefinders #fossils

On our way home from digging for Herkimer Diamonds, Alex and I stopped at the Penn Dixie Fossil Park. We were only there for about two hours, but found plenty of Devonian-age fossils. While we didn’t find anything that would be considered museum quality, we did find plenty of trilobite parts as well as lots of corals, crinoids and brachiopods. It’s a great site to check out if you’re in western New York and is definitely kid friendly and good for beginners. There is a fee for this site, but the funds go to support park operations since it is run by the non-profit Hamburg Natural History Society.

    Cool to go hunting and it looked like you got some fun scores. Will you be prepping your Trilobites and other fossils? Thanks for taking us along!

    Cool location 👍🏼 I find lots of cool fossils, but I’m still searching for a good fossil location like this. I know they’re around… all that awesome stuff in the creeks came from somewhere! It’s hard to convince quarries to let you in but… That’s what I need to do!

    Oh no! I think you forgot the photos you meant to add at the end. Trilobites are on my bucket list of fossil finds. I have a location I have been meaning to go in search of them. Just need to get out there! With all the trilobite parts you found, you could probably piece one whole one together. 😁Looks like it was another fun road trip!

    Awesome finds, I recently went fossil hunting for the first time and I had some pretty good luck, there area I hunted had the same time period as the stuff youfound. I found a decent amount of fossil, including one trilobite roller, a bunch of trilobite bits, some fish bone shards, a shard fish bone armor, and 2 crinoid heads, 2 different species and 1 was pyritized.
