Shark Tooth Trip to Sherman Creeks

Shark Tooth Trip to Sherman Creeks—Saturday, June 17. 8:30am. Everyone is invited.
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.

Know that there are multiple hazards on these urban creeks including snakes, red ants, stinging insects, broken glass and metal construction materials to name a few.

We'll LEAVE the Jack-in-the-Box at Hwy 75 and FM 1417 just south of Sherman at 8:30.
