Junkosaurus Wrecks
Once mighty dinosaurs roamed our planet.
They vanished back to the earth from whence they came.
Then came the industrial revolution.
Man took the earth and made things, lots of things.
He made gadgets, do-dads, giz-mos, thing-a-magiggers,
hicky-doogers, and doom-fletchys.
They wore out. They were thrown away.
This gave rise to Junkosaurus Wrecks.
For all ages and we love hikers, bikers, & campers.
Schedule senior citizen group visits.
Schedule school field trips for week days.
Call and reserved the building for reunions, weddings, birthday parties, poetry reading, and other special events.
