Welcome to! 

Sept. 12, 1988 – March 25, 2014
Christopher Manfull grew up in Evergreen, Colorado with a deep fascination and love of nature and all its creatures.  He especially enjoyed Dinosaur Ridge and the Red Rocks area for the spectacular geology and of course, the dinosaur fossils. He wandered about these favorite places and organized collections of rocks, botanicals, shed snake skins and other natural artifacts as his prized treasures.  Chris was most content among the insects and foxes of his backyard meadows and mountains.

Christopher’s affinity for nature and his desire to create a safe and nurturing world for other children will always be remembered by those who knew him. If you would like to make a donation in his name, his family is asking that you give your donation to Dinosaur Ridge in support of their new Discovery Center.

If you would like to make a donation through PayPal, please click on the button below. Make sure to select “add special instructions to the seller” and please type in “Chris Manfull Memorial Donation: Discovery Center”. This allows us to track who has donated to this specific cause.  

Thank you.
