Welcome to the Dallas Paleo Website

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.

Did You Miss the Webinar?

DPS and myFOSSIL hosted a fossil road-show type webinar from UTA campus October 19, Thursday night. 47 people were logged on to the hour-long presentation to discuss Pennsylvanian fossils found in the north Texas area. Four Dallas Paleo Society members presented their fossil finds and fielded questions from the audience, both online and from those present at the webinar site.  If you were unable to attend or participate in the webinar, a recording will be posted under the resources tab on www.myfossil.org.
