This is a John Wolf Memorial Trip. We'll meet at the farm starting at 10:00 A.M. There is a long driveway directly across the street from a school complex & we'll be there until 3:30 or 4:00.
We will collect only in the area to the left of the driveway and only as far back as the old house. Everyone needs to sign up with me so that I know that everyone knows this. This is a working farm.
We’ll walk the field and collect petrified wood (cypress), probably originally deposited in the Cretaceous or Paleocene Rancocas Group and later redeposited in a Pleistocene bed. No special equipment is necessary; in fact, you should leave your tools at home so that we do not do anything to cause erosion on this low-till farm. Here's a link to a nice write up about one of our trips to a nearby site:
The trip will not be called off for light rain but thunder is a different matter: we cannot be the highest things in the field!
There is more than one way to get there but if you go through Middleton, there is a good pitstop at the Starbucks at 454 East E Main St., and Wawa at 690 Middletown Odessa Road (same road as Main St. going out of town). Your GPS is your friend.
