Dinosaur Monument Looking for Celebration Ideas

Dinosaur National Monument QuarryDinosaur National Monument turns 100 years old on October 4th and is looking for a few more community partners to help spread the word and join the celebration. From April through October, a variety of special events and projects will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the establishment of Dinosaur National Monument. Individuals and organizations are invited to share how they think the Dinosaur Centennial could be celebrated and how they might like to be involved. So far, community-led Dinosaur Centennial Partners events in Vernal, Utah include a lecture at the Utah Field House of Natural History Museum in May, a series of films shown for Documentary Nights at the Uintah County Library from May through September, and an art show at the Uintah County Heritage Museum from September 8th through October 5th. The Rocky Mountain Youth Corps, based out of Steamboat, will introduce a crew of young workers to outdoor based jobs within the monument in June. A Dinosaur Centennial float will be featured in the 4th of July parade in Vernal, and the Labor Day parade in Rangely. Additional events are in the planning process, and more ideas are welcome. The Dinosaur Centennial Partner Invitation form is available on-line or by phone at (435) 781-7700. The submission deadline has been extended to March 6th.
