FRUITA, Colo.- - The Museums of Western Colorado host the 30th Annual Dinosaur Day at their Dinosaur Journey location on June 10.
Activities are provided for all age ranges, and it is one of the largest fundraising events for the Museums of Western Colorado throughout the year. According to officials, the Western Slope has a rich history of dinosaur paleontology. "All the time that we go out and excavate fossils, they stay here in the Grand Valley. They do not go to Denver, they do not go to museums back East, they stay here," says Julia McHugh, the Curator of Paleontology for the Museums of Western Colorado.
There are other events taking place this summer, one of them being their Dino Digs sessions, which still have some spots left. To find out more, visit their website.
