The Friends of Dinosaur Ridge was founded in 1989 with the purpose of preserving the fossils on Dinosaur Ridge near Morrison, Colorado, and educating the public about the natural history of the area. Our mission was later expanded to include the fossil sites at Triceratops Trail in Golden, Colorado. The Friends of Dinosaur Ridge is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, and all donations are tax deductible. Friends of Dinosaur Ridge operates Dinosaur Ridge with the support of, and in partnership with, Jefferson County Open Space.

The mission of the Friends of Dinosaur Ridge is to educate the public about, and ensure the preservation of, the natural and historic resources of Dinosaur Ridge, Triceratops Trail, and the surrounding areas.
