Dinosaur Footprints Reservation

What makes Dinosaur Footprints a special place? Probably the treasure trove of more than 130 tracks revealed in slabs of sandstone. Researchers believe these prints were left by small groups of two-legged, carnivorous dinosaurs, up to 15’ tall. The entire Connecticut River Valley – which scientists believe was a sub-tropical swamp a “mere” 190 million years ago – has long been recognized for its wealth of prehistoric footprints. Visitors can see hundreds of fossils not only from the four distinct two-legged dinosaurs, but also stromatolites, fish, plants and other ancient beings.

Dinosaur Footprints Reservation

Explore the Early Jurassic period at Dinosaur Footprints Reservation, where groups will find hundreds of footprints on the 8-acre site. The footprints were discovered by paleontologists in the 19th century, and are said to have formed approximately 200 million years ago when the Connecticut River Valley was a subtropical area of lakes and swamps. Educational programs at the preservation teach students about the relationship between dinosaur tracks and paleoshoreline indicators to determine if the footprints came from dinosaurs that lived in groups.

FUN FACTS

One single tree can provide the oxygen required for two human beings and over 8,000 sheets of paper. Trees can also clean the soil and air by absorbing harmful pollutants. So what have you done for a tree lately? Nature centers and state parks provide a hands-on environment to discover facts about native plants and animals, as well as ways to preserve these natural resources.
