What do you call a dinosaur with an extensive vocabulary? A Thesaurus!

Join us for our annual Girl Scout Day at Dinosaur Ridge when representatives from local STEM-focused organizations will lead hands-on activities for Girls Scouts! All Girl Scouts, friends, and family are invited. Dinosaur Ridge is a National Natural Landmark just outside suburban Denver and has been ranked as the top dinosaur tracks in the United States!

This Girl Scout friends and family event starts at 9 a.m. and Girl Scouts have until 3 p.m. to complete activities. Troops and families should allow at least two hours to complete activities so plan to arrive no later than 1 p.m.

Advance Cost: $9/Girl Scout and $5/other adults and youth Walk Up Cost: $10/Girl Scout and $6/other adults and youth Fun Patch Cost: $3 each (optional) Parking: $5 (CASH ONLY) and offsite from Dinosaur Ridge – a shuttle will take you from parking to the entrance (Parking map in your myGS Account after registration)

• Good walking shoes.
• Camera.

Things to remember at Dinosaur Ridge:
• We are an outdoor museum. This means that our fossils, bones, and you are exposed to the elements. Please bring a jacket, a hat, sunscreen, and plenty of water.
• We have water and soda available for purchase in our main visitor center gift shop.
• We do not have an on-site restaurant.
• Where can I picnic? We have several picnic tables in front of and behind our main visitor center gift shop. • Please deposit all trash in our designated trash and recycling bins.
• There are port-o-lets located on the Ridge (on the east side just uphill from the main track site)
• No climbing or collecting
• Hiking trail – Jefferson County Open Space maintains a trail on top of the Ridge.
• Take advantage of the interpretive signs and guide speakers at many of the stops along the trail, to learn about the paleontology, geology, and natural history of Dinosaur Ridge and Colorado.
• Although the Ridge is closed to vehicular traffic, we have many cyclists who enjoy Dinosaur Ridge along with our pedestrian walkers. Please stay in the walking lane—the side closest to the Ridge during your journey.
