Dinosaur Garden Capital Campaign

The Friends raised $300K for the California Dinosaur Garden, a new exhibit scheduled to open in 2023, the California Dinosaur Garden will be an immersive experience of the Cretaceous period in California. The garden will feature prehistoric plants within a seasonal marsh landscape, life-size dinosaurs, prehistoric animal sculptures, and interactive interpretive exhibits, including a fossil dig. Exhibits will be fully inclusive, including wheelchair access to the fossil dig, braille labels, and tactile, sensory-rich elements for children of all abilities.
