Field Trip Reports

The field trip reports are prepared by Bill Heimbrock. If you found something on a Dry Dredgers field trip that you would like to show on the Web, photograph the specimen, scan it into your computer and Email it to Bill Heimbrock at billheim@cinci.rr.com . He will post it with the other photos. Be sure to include a description to go with the picture, perhaps including your name.

Also, if you see one of your specimens pictured in this field trip report and would like your name shown with it, tell me the file name of the picture and I'll post your name. If you see a photo of yourself you don't want to be online, email me and I'll be happy to remove it. My email address is billheim@cinci.rr.com
