Oliver Creek Field Trip (AT) Saturday, August 19, 2017  8:30 AM – 2:00 PM This trip is not limited to members of the Dallas Paleontological Society. Everyone is invited. This is a family-friendly trip; kids welcome!

The location is private land in the Goodland Formation (lower Cretaceous, middle Albian) just west of Drop, TX. Expect to find ammonites and echinoids and other typical marine fossils, including shark teeth. Bring hard-rock tools (hammer, chisels), bucket, wading shoes, sun protection, plenty of liquids. We’ll lunch by the creek, so bring your own brown bag. The Society will furnish some drinks and dessert.
