Friends of Big Bend National Park announces the receipt of a grant for Big Bend National Park’s Visitor Orientation Film project. The $8,000 grant from the Permian Basin Area Foundation will go toward the creation of a visitor orientation film for Big Bend National Park. This is the first gift in a $150,000 fundraising campaign.
“We are pleased to have this first gift in our campaign,” said Friends of Big Bend President Jack Lamkin. “Providing visitors with this important amenity will improve their park experience.”
The planned orientation film will discuss visitor safety, park resources and unique values, park challenges and visitor trip planning. The film will be used primarily at Panther Junction Visitor Center, which is the park’s main visitor center.
Friends of Big Bend National Park is a non-profit organization whose mission is to support, promote and raise funds for Big Bend National Park in partnership with the National Park Services and other supporters who value the unique qualities of this national resource along the Rio Grande.
