Have you ever seen a living dinosaur? You might be surprised! If dinosaurs were ‘cold-blooded’ would you expect to find a dinosaur skeleton in Antarctica? Have you ever wondered how the hoodoos of Bryce Canyon formed? Those questions, plus many more will be answered at the festival held at Bryce Canyon National Park on July 31st and August 1st. Please join us for two days of fun family activities learning about dinosaurs; the geology of Utah’s public lands, and how Bryce Canyon N.P. was formed – why it is not a “real canyon”!
