In response to recent events, we are launching a new campaign for past, present and new donors, supporters and members of the public to sign our “Pledge of Support”. It’s as simple as it sounds. Just by signing your name you show your support for the creation of the Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum. It doesn’t cost a cent, but the resulting list of signatures is priceless for our project.
Help us reach our goal of 10,000 signatures (but we won’t complain if we get more). You must be 13-years or older to sign the pledge. While the pledge asks for your email and address this information will not be publicly displayed. Please take 3 minutes of your time to make a difference that will last a lifetime and more. Simply click the image at the top of this page or here and you’ll be taken to our Pledge of Support for the Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum page.
By signing, you are agreeing that:
Education and cultural facilities are important to any successful society, and that you support projects that encourage scientific and cultural development, especially when those projects also carry regional economic benefits.
Within that framework, you support the creation of the Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum, to be built outside of Wembley, Alberta, Canada, which will be the second major dinosaur museum in the province.
We, the signatories, pledge the following:
- We support this project, and recognize that it carries wide-ranging long term benefits for the Grande Prairie area, the region, and the province.
- We will personally visit the museum, and look forward to doing so. In some cases we’re going to be coming from great distances to visit it, and to see what Grande Prairie has to offer.
- We believe every local school child will benefit from a museum like this. There is wide ranging evidence of the educational power of museums on communities. Museums can make science real to kids, open up whole new paths of education and interest that would otherwise never be explored. The Currie Museum will provide annual field trip opportunities for every grade, developed to meet the requirements of the Alberta curriculum.
- We thank current government and private donors and sponsors who have given so much to support this project.
- We also encourage more public officials and companies to publicly support this project.
To learn more visit our FAQs on recent developments and our “Background on recent events” which was submitted as a Letter to the Editor on June 7, 2013. It is a concise summery of the project and the impact of the future museum.
