Work under way on Wind Cave visitor center renovation
Wind Cave was among the first places in the United States to be protected by a national-park designation. Besides all of the interesting features inside the cave’s 132 miles of mapped passageways, the park also encompasses nearly 30,000 acres of prairie, forest and wildlife.
The Rapid City Journal reported recently that, between now and May, visitors to the park will have to dodge some construction. A $1.4 million renovation project has just begun at the park’s visitor center:
The project will replace the building’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning, telephone and computer network systems. A fire sprinkler system also will be installed. …
The project also will provide a climate-controlled environment for the park’s museum collection, which protects more than 15,000 specimens and objects in the visitor center.
