Gore and Lequire, OK Field Trip 5/7/16

The field trip to Gore, Ok and Lequire, Ok was attended by about 20 from the DPS.  Thanks to Polly for arranging our trip with the land owners.  Almost everyone came home with blastoids, crinoids and fossilized coral from the quarry in Gore.  The location is an old quarry just outside Gore and provides a great venue to collect.

We then proceeded to Lequire, OK to a road cut that is filled with plant fossils.  Ferns and tree trunks are abundant. 

Here are some photos of what we found.
