Purpose of the Society
The Dallas Paleontological Society was founded in 1984 for the purpose of promoting interest in and knowledge of the science of paleontology. It was intended by the founding members that the Society would be a network for the exchange of data between professionals and serious amateurs in this field.
Everyone is welcome to join the Society. No special skills or knowledge are required for membership.
