Please click on the buttons - you’ll be able to download the documents. Thanks.
As of 2019, Hungry Hollow field trips - for CCFMS clubs - will be:
1) Spring trip - usually April last Saturday or May first Saturday - co-hosted by London & Niagara clubs.
Weather very often is cold & wet. Ausable River can be fast & dangerous.
2) Mid-summer trip - either July or August - hosted by the CCFMS Central Canadian Federation of Mineralogical Societies.
Weather is usually hot & dry. Ausable River is usually gentle; hence, riverbanks are much safer to collect from.
3) Fall trip - if time and weather permits - not a guaranteed field trip.
4) By special permission trips. Please contact Bob O’Donnell directly for special permission from the site owners.
