DINOSAUR FOOTPRINT TOURS IN THEIR THIRD YEAR IN TUMBLER RIDGE

One of the Tumbler Ridge Museum Foundation?s most popular programs is returning for the third successive year. Good news is that Jennifer Becker, who has made her mark on these unique tours since 2004, is returning for her third summer as Tour Guide.

Tours will go via hiking trails to the Flatbed and Wolverine Dinosaur Footprint sites and last 1-2 hours. Tours will be conducted from May 8 till late August. The two sites have very different types of footprints, and a visit to both is recommended. Costs are kept low and are the same as in 2005, on average $10 per adult, with special kid, family and school group rates. Kids under 6 are free.

Probably the most unique feature is the nocturnal lantern tour which is conducted to the Wolverine site after dark. The low angled lantern lighting brings out the best in the footprints, while dinosaur calls play in the background, creating an extremely eerie atmosphere.

Once the Dinosaur Discovery Gallery is opened, tours will begin there. Until then, they will continue to start at the Tumbler Ridge Visitor Info Centre. Own transportation is required for the short drives to the trailheads.

Dino Footprint Tours have become one of the ?must-do? activities in the Peace Region, and have already entranced thousands of visitors. To book a tour please call (250) 242 3123, or for further information visit www.tumblerridgemuseum.com
