From May 2 until August 26, 2022 there is free parking in Lot 61 for Dino Park visitors - Please follow the posted signage, as there is limited access to the Dino Park due to construction on campus walkways over the summer! The Schmaltz Geology Museum, located on the first floor of Rood Hall, is also free and open to the public whenever the building is open. Please follow all posted COVID-19 safety protocols when you are in the building.
