Has the guy standing in front of the Allosaurous (dinosaur) picked a good spot for a picture? Do you think he knows what's about to happen? (Lunch time!) At the Dinosaur Tracker Field Station you'll learn how to identify carnivore dinosaurs based on the footprints they've left.
If you are not comfortable having having a close encounter with an Allosaurous, it might be a good idea to know what their tracks look like. That way, when you are tracking dinosaurs, you can be sure yuo don't track down more than you can handle. (Visit Dinosaurs For Jesus to learn about men and dinosaurs living together.)
The Cannon Beach Dinosaur Tracker Field Station will give you a close encounter with real dinosaur footprints, made by real, living dinosaurs. You can touch the same rock a dinosaur touched! And you'll learn the basics of tacking and identifying dinosaurs from their footprints... Then you can decide whether to use your time machine to track down a meat eater (remember, you are meat) or a vegetarian, and snap the perfect selfie with a dinosaur.
Opening in the fall of 2019 in the Cannon Beach Bible Church... the Cannon Beach Dinosaur Tracker Field Station, a dinosaur experience that leads to the gospel of Jesus Christ..
We have all the fossils and we're now working on designing the exhibits. There will be lots of real dinosaur tracks, and you will be able to touch many of them. Dinosaur tracks reveal a lot about the animal that made them,. including the size of the dinosaur, the type of dinosaur, and more. Plus you'll learn about dinosaur eggs, corporlite, concretions, and more at the Dinosaur Tracker Field Station.
The big question is... where did all of the dinosaur tracks come from? Why do we find so many fossil dinosaur tracks, but we don't find fossil bear tracks or moose tracks? Bears and moose have certainly walked in mud and left behind tracks, why haven't those tracks become fossils.
You'll get the answers at the Cannon Beach Dinosaur Tracker Field Station.

The following are descriptions of the photographs on this page. The focus of the museum will be on dinosaur tracks, but it will include skeltons and reproductions of dinosaurs.
Top: A reproduction one of of the most famous fossil dinosaur track plates, and considered to be one of finest plates of fossil dinosaur tracks. The original is in the Berneski Museum at Amherst college and is broken. The cast from which ours was made was cast from the original before it was broken.
Second from the top: Some of the actual (real) dinosaur tracks in our collection. These are Grallator tracks made by a Celeophysis type of dinosaur.
Third Image from the top: Church attenders having some fun with a few of our dinosaur models in our church lobby. In the forground is a baby T-Rex and the one with the hard hat is a full-size model of a raptor.
Bottom Image: This is a full-size reproduction of a complete Celeophysis fossil skeleton. The skelton has the common "dead dinosaur" shape with the neck bent toward the back of the body. This is an indication of death by drowning.
The fossil skelton in this photo is being used as a part of our mobil exhibit on dinosaur tracks and creation. We have been using dinosaur fossils for nearly ten years in our evangelism booth and to teach about creation in schools (in the U.S., Russia and Indonesia), at Awanas, VBS, and for other types of groups.
We still have a lot of work to do, but with the help of our faithful volunteers we are planning to open in the fall of 2019. Yes, the dinosaurs are coming to Cannon Beach!
