Jacksboro Saturday March 12th.   This trip is not limited in number, non members welcome 

We will be hunting the lower sections of the Graham Formation, Upper Pennsylvanian. This 300 Mya outcrop represents one of the most richly fossiliferous exposures of marine shelf sediments in the United States. Fossil material that can be found include corals, brachiopods, gastropods, nautiloids and some shark material. You will have to walk a 3/4 mile across the dam and climb a fence. You will need a tool to pry embedded fossils from the matrix and a collection bag for your finds (a plastic storage bad will do nicely). The park is now charging $3 for people over 12 years old. We will meet at the  Jacksboro town square at 9 am. This is a very kid friendlyfield trip. Contact information:  Pollym@airmail.net  Cell: 903 916-0083
