    Looking to Hire a Field Guide in June

    Post  TheMarkswoman on Tue Jun 04, 2013 8:30 am


    I am a science teacher from Los Angeles who will be visiting the Midlands next month.

    I have been researching fossil and mineral collecting in the area, but the information is simply overwhelming, and I'm finding it difficult to identify collecting locations on maps. I am therefore looking to hire a geologist/skilled hobbyist to take myself and another teacher out on a few guided field trips.

    I would be able to pay $200 for 3-4 trips in Derbyshire and South Staffordshire, and can increase the pay if the guide can provide transportation.

    If anyone is interested please contact me ASAP.

    Hi and welcome to the forums.
    I'm just messaging to say that it would be a good idea to post this on other fossil forums as well.
    such an example of a big forum is:
    Your post there should gather a lot of interest.
    hope you find a guide.

    I live in Derby some of the time (my dad works there), but I've never really been hunting around there I'm afraid. Some of the things I've seen online such as the ceratites, orthocones and other nautiloids look quite nice though, best of luck!
