2013 Addition To Petrified Forest

Chinle Formation, Petrified Forest National Park, Arizona

The Fund added more than 4,200 acres to Petrified Forest National Park in 2013. Located in a unique stretch of northeast Arizona, where visitors can see petrified trees that have turned completely into stone during the last 225 million years, the conserved land will enhance protection for the area’s Late Triassic resources and eventually expand opportunities for new scientific discoveries. Photo by Andrew Kearns/National Park Service.
