Volunteers started Friends of Dinosaur Ridge and have been our lifeblood ever since!

In 1989, a group of volunteers, including local politicians, state employees, geologists, and paleontologists banded together to form the Friends of Dinosaur Ridge. Organized originally to stop the looting of the unique resources along Dinosaur Ridge, this group also had a vision of sharing their collective knowledge about the area with their neighbors.

Since its inception, the Friends of Dinosaur Ridge has grown to host nearly 200,000 visitors each year. Please help us continue the legacy of education and preservation by donating your time and talents.
