    NOW OPEN

    After such a long off-season, it’s great that we have once again opened up the gates on another exciting season of dinosaur exploration, mini golf and educational nature hikes.  We’ve been busy painting, fixing, repairing and prepping everything so the exhibits, displays, trails and the facilities are “just right” for your first visit of the season.

    We have lots of new things coming your way for 2017.  Our membership prices have been adjusted to provide greater value, and with no conditions on use.  We've added some terrific new menu options to the concession, including sandwiches and some other healthy snack options.  The Gift Shop has undergone a floor plan change and is now filled with lots of great new dino themed clothing, toys and other items for your consideration. The interactive Bug Rug has a brand new set-up too!

    We totally changed up both our Birthday Party and GO WILD Corporate Party packages.  Better pricing, with lots of added value has now been included.  If you are looking at planning an event this summer season, please give our event brochure a review at http://jurassicforest.com/events.

    We are accepting field trip bookings for the entire 2017 season and still have lots of room for your classroom or group of children.  It’s a great day of learning and entertainment that includes a walk in the Forest that delivers key curriculum based learning messages about dinosaurs in an educational and entertaining manner. 

    Our daily operating hours are 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM, and we are open 7 days per week including all holiday Mondays and other statutory holidays.  Please make sure that you are arrive before 6:00 PM, so you have the minimal amount of time to walk the trails and visit the dinosaurs.

What's New at the Forest?

  • Take your class on a field trip back in time to the world of dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures!

    We are now booking field trips for 2017! Journey down the Discovery Trails and meet massive and majestic herbivores such as Stegosaurus and Triceratops, while sneaking past lethal predators including Tyrannosaurus rex and Spinosaurus. You'll see many familiar dinosaur faces, and maybe meet some creatures you haven't heard of before! Children will enjoy digging for dinosaur bones, playing in the playground, and even taking a ride on a dinosaur.

    The interactive, inquiry-based programs at the Jurassic Forest and Learning Centre will take students and teachers back in time to discover prehistoric flora and fauna, while highlighting the beauty and diversity of the modern forest ecosystem.

    The educational programs at Jurassic Forest were designed to meet Alberta Curriculum targets for Grades 1-7. Students will explore the forest using skills of observation, investigation, and discussion to foster an appreciation for the natural history of the earth and the amazing organisms of the past and present.

Did You Know?

Fossils of Apatosaurus have been found with gastroliths, or stomach stones, which the dinosaur would have swallowed to help break down tough plant material because it had very weak spoon-shaped teeth, poor for chewing.
