Georeference RemarksUnclear where the quarry is - based on other localities assume it is the same quarry that is on the west side of campus near West Hills. Placed lat-long in West Hills and measured uncertainty to include all of the west side of the main campus (assumed that locality is from a time before the aquisition of west campus).
