President's Message

2021-2022 Season is at an End!

The Club is on break until the Fall, our next meeting will be in September!

Please keep a watch out for any changes that COVID could cause with our scheduled events.

Read the Chronicles each month (Members Only), check the calendar here on the TBFC website, and follow us on Facebook. Also, please be very cautious while venturing out into the rivers and creeks. There’s nothing in those rivers worth dying for.

Closed for Summer

As I have reported to you many times in the past, it is an honor and a privilege to serve and represent the Tampa Bay Fossil Club a nd its many fine members.

I want to thank the great support staff behind me in the Officers, Directors, and many of you members who volunteer to help TBFC excel to the exceptional level it has in both the public and scientific communities. Without all of you, none of what TBFC accomplishes each season would be possible.

Thanks for the adventure TBFC!

Good Hunting,

Mike Searle


Tampa Bay Fossil Chronicles

Hopefully you’ve noticed that TBFC has stepped up its game with the newsletter each month. In addition to all of our regular contributors, we’ve added two new recurring articles this season. “In Touch with Inverts” by Rob Carlson was added in September. Recently added, “Paleo Analysis” by Steve Vicari. Each month Steve will be discussing interesting prehistoric fauna and how they relate to extant species.

Please check out all of the articles in each issue. Only TBFC members receive the Chronicles, we don’t post it online or on Facebook.

Be sure to renew your Fossil Permits!
