Tour Guide
A tour guide interpreting the bone site.


Dinosaur Ridge is a non-profit outdoor museum with over 300 dinosaur footprints and dozens of dinosaur bones still in place from the Mesozoic, the Age of the Dinosaurs. Dinosaur Ridge programs are run by volunteers like you! Whether you are looking for a long term opportunity or short term, Dinosaur Ridge has volunteer opportunities for everyone!

School Group Tour Guide

Each year 18,000 school children come to Dinosaur Ridge on school fieldtrips. About a 1/3 of those children are from low-income schools who receive free tours of Dinosaur Ridge thanks to our Field Experience Fund. We are able to offer such opportunities due to volunteers running these 1 ½ hour tours of Dinosaur Ridge’s fossil sites. If you are interested in geology, paleontology, education, teaching, interpreting, working on public speaking skills or just like to learn something new, this is the opportunity for you! We are also looking for guides who are bilingual in Spanish and English. Training is provided throughout the year as needed, however we have some upcoming training sessions if you would like to attend and see what we are all about.

Once school tour season is in full swing, usually April - October there will have tours daily. You can choose to be available for a certain day, for example volunteer for every Tuesday tour, or you can volunteer as needed (I send out weekly emails of upcoming tours). If this seems like something you are interested in, please visit http://www.dinoridge.org/volunteer.html and for more details and to complete our volunteer application.
