Drumheller, Alberta (July 5th, 2005) This July, six-year-old Josiah Schultz from Victoria, British Columbia, will finally fulfill his dream of visiting the dinosaur capital of Canada, through the efforts of Project Drumheller.

By the age of six, Josiah has already demonstrated a passionate interest in dinosaurs and dreams of one day becoming a palaeontologist. Growing up in Victoria, Josiah spent his time pursuing his fascination with natural science, watching every dinosaur program he could find, including the BBC series, Walking with Dinosaurs, Prehistoric Planet, and National Geographic Dinosaur Hunters. Josiah is familiar with the names of numerous dinosaur species and has learned many facts and details about dinosaurs through encyclopedias and other scientific books.

Project Drumheller has banded together to help Lisa in realizing Josiahís dream, by ensuring that Josiah is able to visit Drumheller, the Royal Tyrrell Museum, and Dinosaur Provincial Park. Various sponsors have signed on to contribute to Project Drumheller through the web site,
