More about dinosaurs

Your local museums, public libraries, and bookstores are good places to start. Some national monuments (Dinosaur National Monument, UT and CO), national parks (Petrified Forest National Park, AZ), and state parks (for example, Dinosaur Valley State Park, TX) have outstanding displays. State geological surveys also have or can provide information on nearby dinosaur exhibits. The references below will help you get started; they provided some of the information for this pamphlet.
