NORTH SULPHUR RIVER FOSSILS COLLECTION at ENLOE MUSEUM

The Clara Foster Slough Museum is collecting and exhibiting fossils and artifacts, discovered along the North Sulphur River.  Known to hardcore fossil hunters as a source for Late Cretaceous and Pleistocene fossils, the river bed and banks can reveal much about the ancient life forms that once called the region home.

The efforts of the Enloe Museum, will be to identify and document the discoveries of fossil hunters, and to display a variety of the artifacts from the North Sulphur River.  The museum staff will partner with the Dallas Paleontological Society, along with area universities and museums, to identify any artifacts which might be discovered, that can not be identified.

The Clara Foster Slough Museum staff would like to invite anyone, with a North Sulphur River area fossil or artifact discovery, to bring the piece by the museum for identification and documentation.  Photos and specifics of area finds will be recorded, and the database will be made available to future fossil hunters and researchers.  Please remember to stop by the museum, with your specimens, during your North Sulphur River excursions !

Enloe Museum intern Lane Duncan, presents the museum with two great books, to assist in identification of North Sulphur River fossils and artifacts.
