    I want to know where I can go searching for fossils (being the amateur paleontologist that I am.. ) in or around Charlotte, NC. Also, I want to know how to properly chisel and remove fossils without damaging them.

    if you don't get a satisfactory answer here, you might want to try the Fossil Forum - they're pretty good at that sort of thing, especially within the US

    A google search has yielded a link for you, my friend:

    http://www.ncfossilclub.org/

    and make sure to show up at:

    http://www.ncfossilclub.org/UpcomingEvents.htm

    The day before my birthday!

    From experience, these amateur clubs can put on GREAT events and know alot about places it is legel to collect (which, in the states, is almost anywhere it would seem).

    try to contact the museum of natural science in Raleigh- they might have a palaeontologist there that can help you. If you offer to volunteer for some field work, you'll get experience, learn a crapload AND you'll probably make some friends that can give you the downlow on where to collect cool fossils in your area!
