Remember the Etiquette of Fossil Collecting!


1. Ask Permission! Fossils always belong to the land owner, including the state of Tennessee.

2. Don't be greedy! Leave your second and third-best specimens for the next guy!

3. Keep a Record! Mixed up fossils are worthless -- remember to log the site location!

4. Be safe! Roadside or cliffside collecting can be dangerous. Bring a buddy, watch the weather.

And of course -- Have Fun!
