I didn't realize Friends of Big Bend were paying for the expansion. That's news to me.

Construction will be funded in part by fees gathered at the Park, as well as by donations from the Big Bend Natural History Association and the Friends of Big Bend National Park. The exhibits will be funded through more than $200,000 which has been raised by the Friends of Big Bend National Park for new exhibits highlighting the Park’s ecology.

from the Friend's website...

WATER, It does a body good.

Yeah, let's be elitist. That's what national parks are for, cause they certainly aren't for regular folks.

Yeah, that's totally what I meant.  :icon_rolleyes: Big Bend is exactly what I think of when I imagine an elitist park. No regular folks go there at all. :icon_rolleyes:

Well good for them!  Looks like the park service is paying for the basics of the expansion while Friend's money is going into the exhibits which is great.
