Events at Dinosaur Ridge

The Friends of Dinosaur Ridge, with the help of sponsors and special guests, organize dozens of programs each year for the public, Scout groups, and science organizations.  These special events occur mostly through the Spring, Summer, and early Fall, though our Lecture/Talk Series goes through the winter.

We have programs for various ages, from our Dinosaur Discovery Days (all ages) to our Lecture/Talk Series and Hike With series’ (adults).  Please call the Visitor Center (303-697-3466) ahead of time to verify the age appropriateness of a program before attending.
