Future Utahraptor State Park Appoints Manager | Get out and go

Josh Hansen is the new manager of the recently designated Utahraptor State Park north of Moab. Hansen began working in the Utah Department of Natural Resources at Red Fleet and Steinaker State Parks in Vernal, Utah in 2017. “Steinaker has quite a bit of bone, both paleontological and archaeological,” Hansen said in a presentation to the local Gastonia Chapter of the Utah Friends of Paleontology on July 28th. The new park will place a heavy emphasis on the unique fossils that have been found on the site. Prior to joining DNR, Hansen worked for the correctional facility for 12 years and also has extensive civil engineering skills that will help design and build new parks.
