FROM BIG BEND NATIONAL PARK: Big Bend's superintendent, Bob Krumenaker, cut the ribbon on our new Supercroc sculpture at our award-winning Fossil Discovery Exhibit this past weekend in celebration of Big Bend's fossil fame.  Come check out Deinosuchus and his fierce fossil friends at the Fossil Discovery Exhibit, 8 miles North of Panther Junction Headquarters.
Funded in part by Big Bend Conservancy, this life-size sculpture was designed by park interpretive and science staff using the actual fossils as a guide, the intricate pattern was cut by retired park mechanic Mark Yuhas, and the steel structure was installed by park maintenance staff.  This is an awesome addition to the awesome exhibit!

BIG BEND NATIONAL PARK, TX - A National Park Service plan to protect Big Bend National Park natural and cultural resources from the harmful effects of trespass livestock, primarily from Mexico, has been finalized.
As required by the National Environmental Policy Act of 1970, the document and associated Environmental Assessment was made available in May 2018 for a 30-day public review and comment period. Substantive comments were considered in finalizing the document.
According to Park Superintendent Bob Krumenaker, “livestock that move or are herded into the park damage vegetation, soils, and cultural resources that the National Park Service is required by law to protect. This plan provides the framework to control trespass livestock using live-capture and removal methods, and minimizes the effects of control actions upon park visitors.”
Acting NPS Intermountain Regional Director Kate Hammond signed the decision document, a Finding of No Significant Impact, on November 9. The plan, environmental assessment, and decision document are available at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/BIBE.

Oh, those eyes!  Taupe is looking for his forever home.  He is about 9 months old and is an incredibly handsome, medium-sized pup. Taupe is vaccinated and neutered. He is a strong boy with a lot of energy, so he would do best with an experienced dog owner or an active family. Taupe gets along with other dogs, but tends to play a little rowdy. He is very curious about cats and has shown no aggression towards them. Taupe has been great with the kids he has met, but he will need to learn more basic manners. He likes to jump, so you would need to supervise small children.  For more information, please contact the Marathon Animal Shelter at 432-386-4593.
