Field Trip Sunday March 19

March 19

Our next field trip is to the Oyster river in Black creek.

For those wishing to carpool or travel together, we’ll meet at Wembley Mall parking lot, South East corner. Meet at 8.30am, we will depart at 8.45am sharp.


Meeting point: Hamm Road exit of Highway 19 (Exit 144) at Black Creek. We will meet in the parking area ON THE LEFT HAND SIDE of the road just after you turn into Hamm Road.

Meeting time: 10.00am


From the meeting point we will drive to the site on Glenmore Road in Oyster River. There is a short scramble down to the river which can be wet and slippery. We will take a rope to provide assistance to those who need it. Assistance will be provided for buckets. We certainly recommend rain boots/waterproof boots.


At the site we can find rounded specimens of flowerstone, ricestone, Dallasite, a little epidote, also some banded chert.


Afterwards, there’s a great place in downtown Oyster River to grab pizza and a coffee!


Please sign up on Google docs on the members page of the website.
