We have a set date for a field trip to collect Trilobites near Metaline Falls on Sunday July 30th.  We  start out from the old train station in Ione at 10:00 AM.  There is a lot of parking there and it is easy to find.  The Train Station is on the west side of Houghton Street.  Here is a link to a map.

Bring hammers and chisels.  No digging or hiking required.  You don’t need to be a member to go on the trip.
Here is a link to a story about the quarry.

Barite Crystals on Flagstaff Mt.,  Sunday August 13th:  Meet at the Rivers Edge in Northport Washington at 9 AM.  Rock hammers, solid footwear required.  Two wheel drive is okay.  High clearance preferred.
