WALK WITH DINOSAURS

See thousands of fossilized dinosaur footprints!

DINOSAURS DISCOVERED HERE!

Here at the St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site at Johnson Farm you’ll enter a 200 million-year-old ecosystem that was once home to dinosaurs, fishes, plants, and more. Besides the actual fossils, you won’t want to miss the five life-sized models of prehistoric animals and the working fossil preparation lab.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update as of 7/14/2020:

We have been open for nearly 2 months now! We are grateful to those who have visited, purchased something, or donated to the site.
With positive cases continuing to climb in our area, we are now requiring masks to be worn inside at all times and we are asking for an email or phone number to help the Utah Department of Health perform contact tracing. Please be prepared with both when you visit! 
Our hours are from 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM, Thursday through Monday. Please, see our updated visitor protocols and procedures HERE.

Every little bit helps!

We could use your continued support during these difficult times, follow the link, and DONATE NOW.
Thank you and stay safe!

Generally, our exhibits focus on educating visitors and some younger children may need help reading and understanding the signs.
