While filming for the upcoming PBS special about ALL of the national parks in Texas, our friends at Ft. Davis NHS made this request. Since many of you love Ft. Davis and know its history, you might be able to help them out!!
Are you one of the hundreds of Texans with a Friends of Big Bend National Park license plate? If so, you can now renew your plate online, at www.texasonline.com or at your local county offices. While these new changes will make renewing your plates easier than ever, it also means that the state is no longer forwarding the name and address of FBBNP license plate holders to our office. When you renew, please let us know with a phone call to 432-477-2242 or email, so that we can keep you on our newsletter and events list. And THANK YOU for helping and promoting Big Bend National Park!

The Trull Foundation has awarded the Friends a grant for the Rio Grande Village Wetlands Restoration project. This $6500 grant will go toward rehabilitating the area to it's pre-agricultural state, providing birds with nesting habitat and a buffer zone for the federally endangered mosquitofish. Our thanks to the Trull Foundation for their support of this project!
