Zeolites are found in Eocene basalt in the Baird Creek Quarry, near Wolf Point, Cowlitz County, Washington only a few kilometers from the 200/237 Road Quarry. The site was first in 2000 found by Warren Sorenson, area engineer for Weyerhaeuser Corporation. The best specimens were found in boulders placed along the road near the quarry. The site is best known for an abundance of white scolecite needles capped by mesolite and the rare zeolite yugawaralite. Later in 2003 the area was clear cut and the productive zeolite boulders removed. The area is now closed to collecting.
