BERRY - HAVEY FIELD TRIP

POLAND MAINE

August 6 2017

Registration info



Over the weather-friendly months of each year the NHMC organizes mineral and fossil collecting field trips in Connecticut and occasionally in neighboring states as well. These trips generally involve obtaining access permission from private land owners, businesses, or state/local government agencies. All of these land-owners are concerned about liability-insurance risks and about keeping their property clean. As such participation in all NHMC Field Trips requires compliance with the following conditions:

- Only members of the New Haven Mineral Club can participate.

- All participants are required to act in accordance with the EFMLS Code of Ethics.

- All participants are required to respect any specific conditions and restrictions imposed by each 
  specific land-owner.

To prevent spending the summer in a plaster cast of some sort, all of us will benefit by following some basic rules, and properly prepared equipment will make each excursion more enjoyable.
Be sure you have permission to collect at any site. Never collect near vertical walls, overhangs, edges of cliffs, unstable shelves, or any other dangerous areas, whether posted or not. Be aware of those above and below you, to avoid accidents from falling rocks. Leave each site as you found it. Gates should be left open or closed according to how they were found, unless otherwise directed. Litter and garbage should be removed. Check that you have all tools you brought along. Safety goggles or glasses, and a hard hat should be worn for personal safety. Sturdy gloves provide protection from sharp-edged rocks. Wear suitable clothing, and footware. Insect repellent is needed for collecting in some areas, and a first-aid kit is essential on all field trips. Hot weather, a heavy bucket and pack can lead to trouble. Avoid overheating, and bring plenty of water. Please have an enjoyable, and safe Field Trip Season. From The field: Art Doyle
