State Parks, Historic Sites, and Museums need your help.

Throughout the country, state parks, historic sites, museums, and similar institutions are struggling to continue operating. Because of general financial problems, many of these institutions are operating on a reduced schedule or in danger of closing. Some are being forced to sell off artifacts and property. Many will not weather these hard times without your help.

Places Earth urges everyone to support these vital and important public resources any way you can. Please donate your treasure, time, and talent. Write to your governor and other elected officials telling them to find a way to keep state parks open. It will be your loss.

Claude K. Bell (1897-1988) began several life size dinosaur sculptures about 1960s beside the Interstate 10 in the small town of Cabazon in Riverside County, a few miles northwest of Palm Springs. Unfortunately, Claude died shortly before completing the second sculpture and the rest were never begun.

Dinny the Apatosaurus was intended to be a dinosaur museum. Begun 1964 and took about 11 years to build and is about 45 feet high and 150 feet long.

Mr. Rex the T-Rex was begin 1981 to 1986. It was to include a slide and is about 65 feet.


A Woolly Mammoth was planned but never begun.

The site has recently been expanded in World Biggest Dinosaurs, a park with life-size dinosaurs.
