New dinosaur museum in Vernal, Utah
In general, good news. New updated Utah Field House of Natural History in
Vernal, Utah to open in June.
Discusses the possibility of a centralized storage facility for BLM and
National Park specimens from the Uinta Basin, and the possibility of
changing Dinosaur National Monument into a National Park, which leads to and
odd comment by Robert Starr Waite (Salt Lake City):
"It would be the only paleontological park in the U.S. and possibly the
world," he said. "People don't understand what they have here."
Ummm... Dinosaur State Park? Hagerman Ash Fall Beds National Monument?
Berlin Ichthyosaur State Park?
DINOSAUR freakin' PROVINCIAL PARK!?!?!?
Okay, okay. Like I said, in general, it's good news.
