Hi Eleanor,  I just saw your post.  I went to the Belgrade Quarry on January 20th for their quarterly fossil collecting day.  About 30 people showed up.  That is a large crowd!  I didn’t find anything too unusual but was happy with my finds, including a crock tooth, two cow shark teeth, two beautiful nurse shark teeth, a great white(missing root), some partial phalanges (dolphin?), petrified wood and a nice collection of the more common shark teeth, ray mouth plates, shark and dolphin vertebrae, turtle fragments, etc.  I have a couple of things that I still need to identify. Belgrade recently pushed a lot of dirt on top of some prime fossil collecting areas, so sad to see such a big area covered up by non-productive dirt.
