Plum Point is located in the northern end of Calvert County. The majority of sediment within the cliffs belongs to the Calvert Formation, the oldest rock unit exposed in Calvert County. The 70-75 foot-thick cliffs of the Calvert Formation at Plum Point can be subdivided into two members and several Shattuck fossil assemblage zones. A great number of fossilized shark teeth and mollusks are preserved at this location.
