Are you referring to the toxic contaminant issues in the Puget sound region?
Generally speaking, once processed and with some exception, most rocks from the yard are fine - I'd steer clear of any wood tho - they're a bit pricey, but I've seen some ceramic driftwood pieces at the LFS that look really good.
There is something cool about a nice piece of driftwood (or facsimile) as a center piece with rocks at sides and/or back drop.
Dirft wood. It's not a toxic cess pool, but I do worry a little. It's mostly that it is salt water, and I run fresh water. Worried about salt leeching mostly. I'd let it soak for a few weeks, than bake it in an oven to kill it.

As for rocks, who knows what bugs and bacteria/moss/algae. I'm thinking of going hiking to a river and see what I can find. That and I live near a few landscape/gravel pits.

Thanks for the ideas. I have some fake makapi (spelling) wood. Just looking for soemthing to put an anubis on.
