The National Park Service is celebrating its 40th anniversary by hosting a series of events that are looking to educate people on what life was like for the dinosaurs that roamed the American Southwest.
The event comes at a time when some conservationists are calling for a return to the species that dominated the Southwest before the dinosaurs’ extinction.
The first event will take place Saturday in the park’s National Wildlife Refuge, where volunteers will learn about the life of the dinosaurs.
The following day, a second event will be held in Monument Valley Park, where scientists will discuss the evolution of the park system, as well as the evolution and significance of its namesake, the Tyrannosaurus Rex.
The park will also host a special “Dinosaur Encounter” on Sunday.
