Montana Dinosaur Trail Partnership Promotes Tourism
by Chris Miller, Montana State Office
The BLM and several partners were honored recently for the production and printing of the Montana Dinosaur Trail brochure. All trail partners received plaques during the 2007 Montana Governor’s Conference on Tourism and Recreation held in Helena April 2-3.
Some of the world’s most significant dinosaur discoveries have been found in Montana, and many of those were on public land. The Montana Dinosaur Trail brochure features 15 museums across Montana where visitors can discover dinosaurs where they lived, and receive a "passport" that can be stamped at each site they visit. Some of these facilities even offer the opportunity for members of the public to participate in paleontology field digs.
Brochures are available at all the sites, and at each BLM field office. Discover more at www.mtdinotrail.org
The project was spearheaded by Travel Montana. The BLM assisted with editing the brochure and contributed funds for printing. Other partners included Custer Country, Bozeman Convention & Visitors Bureau, Missouri River Country, Russell Country, Yellowstone Country, Malta Chamber of Commerce, PhillCO Economic Growth Council, and the Parks Division of Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks.
