Join a Bureau of Land Management paleontologist to explore the world of dinosaurs during the BLM Field Office’s summer series of “Jurassic Walks and Talks.” Every weekend through Labor Day, a BLM paleontologist will lead free tours of dinosaur fossil and tracksites in the Moab area. On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings, the BLM will also present hands-on activities for kids and talks by a dinosaur expert at the Moab Information Center, located at the corner of Center and Main streets. The events are all free and everyone is invited.

The tours take place in the mornings, Friday through Sunday, and involve short hikes with time to ask questions. Different tracksites are featured each day, on a rotating schedule. The weekend evening “Jurassic Talks” will take place outside the MIC at 6 p.m. Friday evenings will involve hands-on educational activities for kids. Saturday and Sunday evenings will consist of discussions about Moab’s world-class dinosaurs and trackways.

Maps and schedules ​are available ​at the MIC, or online at https://go.usa.gov/xNdsY.
