Dinosaur fossil exhibit proposed for Big Bend

12/23/2013

EL PASO, Texas (AP) - The National Park Service is planning a new dinosaur fossil exhibit for Big Bend National Park in West Texas.

The exhibit built inside the park would house fossil replicas from dinosaurs that existed in the area more than 90 million years ago.

Don Currick, park geologist says the exhibit would be built in an already developed area of the park. The fossils will tell the evolution of Big Bend from the time it was covered by ocean to eventual extinction.

The proposed exhibit is going through the environmental assessment process and the public comment period runs through Monday. Some have objected to its location in the park. It would be paid for by the nongovernmental group, Friends of Big Bend.
