How to Help

  The Friends welcome donations to this exhibit, particularly as we strive to meet our matching gift goal of $275,000. This exhibit will be the most significant addition to the park’s visitor services system in decades. The paleontology exhibit will attract new visitors, families in particular, to come see what the park has to offer.
