Wind Cave National Park is one of our oldest national parks. It was created in 1903 by signature of President Theodore Roosevelt to become our eighth national park and it was the first park anywhere created to protect a cave. Friends of Wind Cave National Park provides a vehicle for citizens to more fully participate in this process.
Helping Where We're Needed
This year, Friends of Wind Cave will maintain the 266 road to the historic Sanson Ranch as well as the site"s buffalo jump that dates back as early as 4,000 years ago. We're also funding a Lidar digital tour, survey gear for cave exploration teams, and helping to establish a trailhead and trail from Hwy 385 to the buffalo jump. Giving all year long will help us to fund these projects and others that may come along. Giving Tuesday is a good time to make your tax-deductible donations.
