Dinosaur Ridge

Scout Days - Oct 9 & 10

Volunteer for our Scout Dinosaur Discovery Days! October 9th is for Girl Scouts and October 10th is for Scouts of America.  These fun events help scouts to learn about dinosaurs, geology and other sciences with opportunities to earn scout badges in those areas. We will not run public tours those two days, but general visitors can also enjoy the event and purchase shuttle tickets onsite to take them up to the stops on the Ridge.

Volunteer Opportunities: Many helpers are needed from setup to teardown, parking direction, info & registration booths etc. Regular Dinosaur Ridge volunteers are encouraged to help as interpreters at our sites along the Ridge.  Take a look at the volunteer shifts below and click on the sign-up button to add your name for one or more shifts. Feel free to invite coworkers, friends and family members to help with any roles that don't require any experience! 

NOTE: The event timeframe is 9am-3pm. All morning shifts include helping with setup from 8-9am. All afternoon shifts will include helping with teardown from 3-4pm. If helping with both AM & PM shifts, a sack lunch is provided and you may arrive a bit later depending on your role (please confirm with Barbara). Due to the large number of attendees and onsite booths, all parking will be offsite at the Bandimere Speedway with free shuttles provided to and from the Visitor Center for volunteers starting at 7:30am and returning until 4:30pm. Please plan accordingly to arrive on time.

Questions? Please email Lisa Gravil at [email protected]
