We just received from the Colorado Geological Survey a cd-rom entitled Dinosaurs in Our Backyard. This is an interactive look at Colorado paleontology, focused mostly on the Dinosaur Ridge area in Jefferson County which is full of preserved dinosaur footprints. State agencies have also produced a few other publications readers can use to look for dinosaur fossils. These include Dinosaur Remains in Colorado, produced by the Colorado Historical Society’s archaeology office, and the Colorado Geological Survey’s Colorado’s Dinosaurs; Dinosaur Lake: The Story of the Purgatoire Valley Dinosaur Tracksite Area; and Colorado’s Magnificent POGIs [Points of Geological Interest], which includes some information on dinosaur fossil sites.
