Dinosaur Ridge

Dinosaur Ridge is a popular destination for visitors from around the world! Help greet and orient dinosaur enthusiasts of all ages at our Main Visitor Center and exhibit hall. Volunteers may sit or stand under a shaded awning at a safe distance outside the exhibit hall building (or inside behind a plexiglass shield if preferred) while welcoming and tallying visitors, explaining social distancing and capacity rules, and answering general questions about Dinosaur Ridge.

4-hour shifts are available every day of the week and weekends. Volunteer one or more shifts a week on a regular schedule or as you are available. Training and detailed information about our exhibit hall is provided.

Please note: Dinosaur Ridge currently has strict COVID-19 safety measures in place for both visitor and volunteer safety. All visitors and guests are required to wear face coverings and practice social distancing.

Volunteers must complete a background check, a COVID-19 Safety Acknowledgement and wear a mask (cloth dinosaur-print mask provided!).
