Gorges du Verdon, France
NY Lake Erie Cliffs
At the Lake Erie shore, and in the Eighteen Mile Creek area, shales and limestones from the Givetian, middle Devonian period are exposed. In the Ludlowville and Moscow formations (Hamilton Group) you can find trilobites and other fossils. At the cliffs at the lake, collecting is allowed. Allng the Eighteen Mile Creek you first have to ask for permission at the landowner.
In the closeby Penn Dixie Paleontological and Outdoor Center in Hamburg you can also collect fossils in an old quarry after paying a small fee. Here you have to dig to get to the trilobite layer. The same formations as in the Eighteen Mile Creek area are exposed here. The Center only open at some saterdays. See http://www.penndixie.org/ for more information.
