Dinosaur Discovery Days are free outdoor events hosted by Dinosaur Ridge at the Main Visitor Center Complex and along the Ridge Trail on the second Saturday of the month between May and October. Volunteers are stationed along the Dinosaur Ridge Trail at significant interpretive sites, while many others staff booths and activities at the Main Visitor Center Complex for kids of all ages. Visitors can hike at their own pace or take the shuttle bus at $4 per person on these special days (ages three and under ride free).
Join us for our annual Girl Scout Day at Dinosaur Ridge! All Girl Scouts, friends, and family are invited. Girl Scouts and other youth must attend with a troop leader, parent, or guardian. Children are not permitted to attend without supervision. Children 3 and under are free. Representatives from local STEM-focused organizations will lead hands-on activities for Girl Scout and work toward earning badges. During this event, we're ALSO recognizing National Fossil Day,so the general public is also welcome to come learn about fossils and celebrate.
