Greetings from Badlands National Park!

I have just donated for the great courage and honesty of the Badlands Park Service. Great tweets! Let's hear it for scientific integrity!

Sincerely,

Donna

P.S. I support the parks because… I love all of the great National Parks! They are a treasure that belong to all of us and must be protected at all costs. WE visited the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone this fall and were just blown away by the amazing geology and animals.

Badlands National Park

Badlands National Park preserves 244,000 acres of sharply eroded buttes, pinnacles, and spires blended with the largest protected mixed-grass prairie in the United States. The park's rugged beauty attracts visitors from around the world, and its geologic deposits contain the world's richest Oligocene epoch fossil beds, estimated at 23 to 35 million years old.
