Help Protect and Preserve Moab Area Dinosaur Tracks Donate Now

Dinosaurs such as Camarasaurus, Apatosaurus, Diplodocus and Allosaurus roamed the Moab area some 100 – 200 million years ago, leaving their tracks in the muds and sands of ancient lake shores and rivers. The footprints they left behind, now captured in solid rock, are a fascinating look into the past for Moab area visitors. Those tracks are also a rare, non-renewable resource that paleontologists study to learn about dinosaur anatomy, behavior and climatic conditions long ago.

When fossil footprints are damaged, destroyed or improperly collected, their scientific and educational value may be greatly reduced or lost forever. We need your help to provide interpretation and education that will help visitors enjoy Moab track sites and learn about the dinosaurs that walked there, while increasing awareness of the need to protect our irreplaceable fossil resources for future generations.

Justin Holland Memorial Fund Donate Now

Partnerships between the US Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and the Family of Justin Holland provide an annual gift of a pair of custom made Whites Boots to a Wildland Firefighter deemed Firefighter of the Year. Justin was a Wildland firefighter at the time of his death, and his nickname was Boots. His love for the outdoors and the support of his firefighting crew made it the wish of his family to create this fund to honor other firefighters and support his firefighting family. This person is voted in by a combined committee of US Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management inter-agency management. This partnership also coordinates an annual event to bring firefighters, the Holland family, and agency personnel together for a fundraising and awareness event.
