Project Save T-Rex


Help save T-Rex (the green dinosaur) in Vernal, UT

Join in the grassroots fundraising effort to save and repair T-Rex - the large, iconic green dinosaur in Vernal, UT. T-Rex was designed and constructed by a local business owner, George Millecam, to display at his Dine-A-Ville Motel in 1969. He has fallen into disrepair and needs to be resurfaced and painted. Over 2,800 responded to the community online survey with a majority of responses indicating a willingness to donate to the effort. Vernal City Council supports the majority views of the survey to repair the green dino and keep him at the current location. Donations will be gathered through Charitable Friends of Ashley Valley, a local 501c3 non-profit. The funds will be forwarded to Vernal City to help pay for the repair and painting of T-Rex. If donations exceed the goal, the funds will be used for landscaping on T-Rex's island and safety measures.

Donations can also be dropped off at the Vernal Area Chamber of Commerce by cash, venmo or check to Charitable Friends of Ashley Valley (re: Save T-Rex).
