Read-a-Saurus Mondays

Ashton Gardens
9 am – 9 pm

Don’t let that education go to waste! Sign the kiddos up for Dig Into Reading, the new summer reading program at Dinosaur Island. The easiest way to participate? Join us for Read-a-Saurus Mondays. Each Monday throughout the summer, children can read inside the Ashton Gardens next to a featured dinosaur of the week – during this time, parents will keep track of their reading log. Bring a blanket, snack, and whatever you need to feel comfortable outside. Need some reading ideas? Grab a book from the Little Library in the Visitors Center! Take a book or donate one to the Little Library for a new adventure with each visit.
