Research and Collecting
Collection or removal of any natural or historic items from Dinosaur National Monument is prohibited without a collection permit. This includes artifacts, fossils, antlers, rocks, potshards, seeds, plants, flowers, and all other resources found within the monument boundary. Any collection of park resources requires an approved research/collection permit prior to the items being collected. The only exception to this rule is the collection of certain fruit or berries that will be used for personal consumption while within monument boundaries.
Research/collection permits are most often issued to accredited institutions, such as museums and universities, who are conducting scientific research on park lands or resources. Contact the monument at (435) 781-7700 for more information.
