HISTORY
In 2000, two boys were tubing down rapids in Flatbed
Creek just below Tumbler Ridge. They fell off their tube
and were walking back upstream on bedrock when they
noticed a series of depressions in the rock and correctly
identified these as a dinosaur trackway. Trying to
convince adults of the importance of their discovery, their
perseverance paid off...
This discovery made national headlines and these events
served as catalysts for the formation of the Tumbler Ridge
Museum Foundation.
DINOSAUR TRACKWAY TOURS
Summer tours are offered to two sites via hiking trails: the
Flatbed trackways and the Wolverine track site. The Flatbed
tour takes about two hours while the Wolverine tour is
shorter. One unique feature is the Wolverine lantern night
tour nothing like it is offered anywhere else in the world.
The low angled lantern light brings out footprints which are
hardly visible by day, and the ambience is ethereal, with
the Wolverine River rushing by, and dinosaur sounds (or
scientists' best guesses at them) playing in the background.
DINOSAUR CAMPS
The Dinosaur Camp is open to children between 8-13
years of age. The Camp offers introductory "Raptor"
camps, two day "Family Mini-Camps" and
single day "Dinosaur Day Camps".
