DVESS

The Delaware Valley Earth Science Society, Inc., a non-profit organization, was founded in 1956 and incorporated in the State of New Jersey in 1957. The Society promotes interest, knowledge, and the development of skills in the earth sciences. These interests include mineralogy, Paleontology, lapidary arts, archeology, and location preservation. The society supports the conservation of natural resources, advocates the availability of collecting sites, and maintains close contact with those in the academic field.

The Society meets the second Wednesday of each month at the Centenary United Methodist Church at 151 S White Horse Pike, Berlin, NJ 08009. Google map of location. Directions: If you are traveling east on the White Horse Pike (Rt. 30), in the middle of town, you'll pass the Diner and a food mart on your left, followed by a couple of white buildings, then the church is on your left (white with red front doors). Look for a square white steeple tower. There is a one-way driveway on each side of the church - the entrance driveway is on the right side of the church. The Education Bldg. is behind the church. Either park on the side and use the doors in the front (come up one flight of stairs), or park in the back to use the door in the rear.

Meetings start promptly at 7:30 p.m. with the main program followed by the business portion, and conclude around 10 p.m. Meetings are open to the general public.


DOT pile #1
The next morning, we drove outside of town to one of the Dept. of Transportation gravel piles, which comes from the PCS property. We actually found more shark teeth here than we did in the PCS mine the day before. Of course, we didn't find anything big, since this material is screened and sized for road fill.
