Field Trip Incentive Program: Any member who comes up with a new collecting site and leads a trip there will be rewarded with a free North Coast Fossil Club membership for one year.
Events scheduled to take place at this meeting will include:
The Annual Chitaley Paleobotany Competition
Through the generosity of Dr. Shya Chitaley, the North Coast Fossil Club is proud to sponsor its annual Chitaley Paleobotany Competition which will be held at the December NCFC Meeting.
All members are invited to prepare a short (10-15 minutes) presentation concerning any paleobotany topic. After the talks, by a vote of the members present, a winner will be determined. The winner will be awarded a nice fossil prize that was donated by Craig Tipton. It is an Oligocene Dawn Redwood Metasequoia Occidentalis from the John Day Formation located in Oregon.
