Raton Boy Scout Troop 91 recently performed a community service project, salvaging a dinosaur track from the Climax Canyon City Park. The track was in danger of theft and vandalism as well as natural processes such as erosion and flood damage.
Using only hand tools, the Scouts carefully excavated the stone with the embedded track. They then wrapped it in a protective blanket and securely strapped it to a stretcher before carrying it down the rocky brushy canyon to the nearest vehicle access.
The track is now on display at the Raton Museum where it is safe from damage and available for every museum visitor to see.
