    Dino Days 2024

    The event was well organized, all materials were provided with information and instructions to guide our guests with the activity. Staff was present however at times coordinators/ leads were unavailable to open gates or to check-in with volunteers, my recommendation here is to offer a communication tool “walkie-talkie” at each activity table to better support inquiries & guest questions. Overall, very enjoyable day and fun community engagement!
