DPS Regular Monthly Meeting for October

  • Wed, October 12, 2022
  • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Brookhaven College and ZOOM

National Fossil Day

The DPS will meet next on Wednesday, October 12th, at 7PM Central time, at our normal meeting place, the Boonesville Auditorium (Room 125) of the Ellison Miles Building (Bldg H) at Brookhaven Campus of Dallas College (3939 Valley View Lane, Farmers Branch).  ReBecca Hunt-Foster, paleontologist at Dinosaur National Monument in northeast Utah and northwest Colorado, will speak to via Zoom on “Managing and Protecting the Paleontological Resources of Dinosaur National Monument”.  The second Wednesday of October was designated by the US National Park Service as National Fossil Day, to commemorate fossils in our national parks.  The celebration has expanded to include events at state (eg Dinosaur Valley State Park) and local (eg Ladonia, Mineral Wells) parks as well.  With extensive experience with museums and government, ReBecca is very knowledgeable of the importance of fossils in our public lands. 

DPS meetings are always free and open to the public.  We invite members to bring food to share, and everyone can bring fossils to show (and perhaps ask for identification help).  Remote attendees are welcome to join our Zoom meeting at this link: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/83765036222 (or start the Zoom app and enter the Meeting ID: 837 6503 6222) You then need to enter the Passcode: 618114.  Of course, please mute your audio until you are ready to speak, especially during the presentation.  You can post questions for ReBecca in the chat box, starting with uppercase QUESTION so they are easy to identify, or unmute yourself at the end to ask your question directly.  We hope to see you there, either in person or online.


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.


If you have a question, if you have a fossil that you cannot identify, or need a site investigation, contact the Fossil Bureau of Investigation for help.
