The park encompasses ~800,000 acres of Chihuahan Desert and the Chisos Mountains, along the banks of the Rio Grande River in West Texas. Big Bend offers a variety of habitats from riparian zones and hot springs along the Rio Grande River, to Chihuahan desert, and oak forests in the sky islands of the Chisos basin. Big Bend is also an International Dark Sky Park, with the least light pollution of any national park in the lower 48 states. The park also hosts more species of birds, bats (20 species!), butterflies, ants, and scorpions than any other national park in the United States. Participants will stay in the Chisos Basin and experience many areas of the park, with opportunities to catch many local species of bats.
