Summer 2001, Dinosaur footprints in the West Algarve.

Under the initiative of the Ministry of Science and Technology and with the collaboration of Portuguese Geologists, a series of guided visits to various geologically interesting sites throughout Portugal took place in August and September with the title of "Geology in the Summer 2001".

Although enrolment was required, the tours were free.

There was no publicity in English, and a Portuguese leaflet " Pegadas de Dinossáurios no Barlavento Algarvio" was picked up by chance in Vila do Bispo.

A similar series is planned for the Summer of 2002.
