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.
