Are YOU a Friend of Big Bend National Park?

One of our favorite partner organizations is the Friends of Big Bend National Park, are you a member? You can join HERE.
The non-profit organization has raised funds to enhance the park's services including the new Paleontology exhibit and the new park orientation film.  And they're a bridge between the public and the park.  Take, for example, the Friends' upcoming work projects for National Public Lands Day, September 28th.  Last year, the organization had its hearty and enthusiastic volunteers plant trees and clear wetland areas near Rio Grande Village.
This year, volunteers will be working to restain and rehab the Chisos Basin amphitheatre benches, weeding and replanting missing plants at the interpretive trail at Panther Junction.  How can you help?  First JOIN the Friends here, then sign up as a volunteer for National Public Lands Day here.
