You can information about the Dinosaur National
Monument on-line (including the Dinosaur National
Monument Association, dinosaurs, and books). The
park was created in 1915 for the unmatched deposit
of Jurassic dinosaur bones found in the Morrison
formation. The unique natural exhibit of over 1500
dinosaur bones, in their final resting place, were
deposited in an ancient river bed turned to stone.
Today remnants of that deposit form one wall of the
Dinosaur Quarry Visitor Center.
