Sherman Creek Collecting Trip

  • Sat, August 20, 2016
  • Post Oak Creek


  • Thanks to our PIT Crew friend, Roger Farish, there will be a collecting trip to Post Oak Creek on Saturday, August 20th. We have a minimum of fifteen (15) participants. Please follow the registration link to reserve your place.

Roger Farish will be leading a shark teeth collecting trip to Sherman, Tx, August 20th.  We will meet at the jack-in-the-Box on Highway 75 at Highway 1417 in Sherman at 8:30AM.  This trip is open to any and all members and non-members of the society.  

The largest Cretaceous shark teeth in Texas come from the creeks around the Sherman/Denison, Texas area. Since the area’s so heavily collected, we’ve found success in digging/screening for the teeth. You can simply surface collect – rake through the gravel or actually screen – dry or wet.

Who we are

The DPS is a group of professional and amateur paleontologists that want to exchange information, interact, and continue their education in paleontology.  We meet once a month on the second Wednesday evening of the month at Brookhaven College, Building H.
