Your Membership Supports Our Mission

Become a Member

Your membership supports our mission of preservation and education of the amazing fossils and geology located at Dinosaur Ridge, Triceratops Trail, and other sites within the Morrison-Golden Fossil Areas National Natural Landmark.

Dinosaur Ridge is a 501(c)(3) organization that relies on donations from generous people like you so that we may:

  • Educate 13,000 school children each year.
  • Provide free tours to low-income schools through the Field Experience Fund.
  • Educate the public during Dinosaur Discovery Days, which are held throughout the summer.
  • Update informative signs along the Dinosaur Ridge and Triceratops Trails.
  • Put in place protective measures to help preserve the fossils.
  • Expand educational programming to include outreaches, summer camps, field trips, and other special programs.
  • Preserve a non-renewable resource for generations to come.
