Celebrating a national landmark in Alpine

Posted: Thursday, October 3, 2019 12:15 am

Splendid and vast and delighting visitors from all over the world with its natural wonders, Big Bend National Park achieved another important milestone this year - its 75th birthday. Established in 1944, Big Bend National Park will throw a grand party at Museum of the Big Bend on the campus of Sul Ross State University in Alpine on Friday, Oct. 11, from 4-6 p.m., and the public is invited.

It’s all thanks to the efforts of the Big Bend Conservancy, a non-profit fundraising partner of Big Bend National Park and the Rio Grande Wild and Scenic River, in collaboration with the National Parks Service. The Big Bend Conservancy is an organization dedicated to preserving and enhancing the natural wonders of this park, and after throwing bashes all over Texas, Alpine will be the next stop of the year-long birthday celebration. The park will even mark the event with a birthday cake.
