Nature Store Fire

As most of you may know, we had a fire back in February. The temporary Nature Store is open, located on the north end of the Overlook. Initial clean-up of the site is complete and there are ongoing plans for the future of our Nature Store. Be sure to check back here and on our Facebook page for updates on construction progress and for when the Nature Store will re-open.

A big thank you is owed to the Somervell County Fire Department for their help. Fossil Rim is ever grateful. Donations by check can be sent to Fossil Rim Wildlife Center, 2155 County Road 2008, Glen Rose, Texas 76043 or directly through our website. Donations at this time will be much appreciated.
