Cannon Beach Dinosaur Tracker Field Station (The Plan)
This is a very rough draft of what you'll see in the Cannon Beach Dinosaur Tracker Field Station. We intially have room for 12 display areas, plus we're squeezing in a resource table at the end. We have more fossils than we can fit in, so this will allow us to change the displays such that repeat visitors will see something new when they return.
- Welcome & Introduction What you'll see and experience.
Skeptics will be invited to come in and ask questions of the staff.
- Why Not Oregon? - Why are there no dinosaur
fossils in Oregon? (Oregon geology.)
- Where Can You Go to Find
Dinosaurs? - The evidence living dinosaurs leave behind.
What do you need to know? - The questions we'll answer at the Dinosaur Tracker Field Station.
- Answering The Questions Everyone Asks - Dinosaur footprint basics.
- This Is A Dinosaur Footprint - What type? How big? How long ago
was the footprint made?
- Finding Herbivores (Plant Eaters) -
Dinosaur tracks tell their story, and you can read them like a book.
- Plant eater or People Eater? - Take the test, can you find and identify
dinosaur tracks on this stone?
- Trick or Dinosaur? - Fossil impressions
that are not what they seem (tricks)
- Identify These Fossils
Take the test. What do you see on these six stones (beware of tricks)?
- Dinosaur Eggs What do they look like and what type of dinosaur
laid them? Concretions look like eggs, but are a sign of a massive flood.
- Big and Little Signs of a World-Wide Flood Petrified trees
and closed clam shells.
- Saved From The Flood The Ark
/ Saved From Sin The Cross
- Resource Table
This plan is subject to change. As we build the exhibits we will refine and adjust our plan to best present the story of dinosaurs and the gospel.
