The St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site is an awesome way to take a glimpse back into the Jurassic age! Just in case you thought that St. George couldn't get any cooler, I'm here to tell you that that isn't true! We also have one of the best preserved and numerous dinosaur tracks today! So if you are interested in this, here is some background:

Dr. Shelton Johnson was leveling the soil on his land for farming, when he suddenly found a harder Sedimentary Rock formation. Curious, he looked more thoroughly and found that they were dinosaur tracks! Knowing they should be maintained for education and science, he donated the land with the tracks on it to the City of St. George, which then created the St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site at Johnson Farm to display some of the findings. 

The Dinosaur Discovery Site at Johnson Farm museum is open Monday-Saturday from 10AM to 5PM, and closed on holidays. A great way to stay out of the cold this winter, It costs $6 for an adult and $3 for children 3-11. Children under 3 are free. Go to www.dinosite.org for more information on the St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site at Johnson Farm.
