Mick Tune, fossil enthusiast and frequent speaker for the Dallas Paleontology Society https://www.dallaspaleo.org/, will share his knowledge of the Cretaceous period marine megafossils such as mosasaurs and plesiosaurs. See and touch his many 80-million-years old Late Cretaceous marine fossil finds from the Ladonia Fossil Park on the North Sulphur River (NSR). Why is the NSR’s odd and mostly man-made slot canyon the most interesting and open fossil hunting hikes in North Texas? What is its future now that a dam and reservoir under construction will inundate more than half of the river? Tune, who calls fossil hunting “hiking with a purpose,” is the author of Wildering: Anyone's Guide to Enjoying the American Wilderness.
