I want to start this trip report with a huge thank you to Tim for escorting the group on the first half of the trip and for patiently answering all of the questions.  We couldn’t have done it without you!!! 

September 26, 2015 - Cretaceous Fossils, Dallas Co, AL

A trip back to the gullies, not as hot as usual, actually very pleasant.  A number of shark vertebra and various fish fossils and jaws were found.  Several shark teeth and enchodus teeth were also found.


May 23-24, 2015 - Cretaceous Fossils, Butler County, Alabama

Trip to a creek in Butler county, Alabama.  A good turnout for the hot weather.  Creek was good for cooling off while hunting fossils.


July 20, 2013 - Perry & Dallas County, Alabama

After a morning spent collecting in the HOT gullies, we cooled off at lunch in a torrential downpour.  Luckily the weather cleared up in time for collecting in a nearby creek, which was delayed a bit while we had to find the access road under all the kudzu!  Yes, it's taking over Alabama!


May 26, 2012 - Cretaceous fossils, Butler County, AL

In May BPS members showed up for a weekend of camping and fossil collecting on a private creek in Butler County. Since our last visit a number of high water events had alterered the creek. Places that had been covered in sand were now bare, with rocky, clay bottoms. Numerous small shark teeth, cochina stone, fish vertebrae, and a few pottery shards were found. One area of clay that was seen appeared to be filled with fossil leaves, with ancient leaves. There is a strong possibility that the woody and leaf material found in the clay layers is Cretaceous age.


April 28-29, 2012 - Washington County, Alabama

BPS members took a weekend trip to Washington County, to an old quarry where they found echinoids, sand dollars, numerous shells,  and foraminifera, plus a few scattered shark teeth were found.
