Rangers at Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument are asking for your help so they can do more for military families serving in Colorado. There is an on-line voting competition between national parks and right now, the Fossil Beds National Monument is head to head with the Gateway Arch in St. Louis.
If the Fossil Beds Monument comes out on top the Energizer battery company will supply volunteers to help spruce things up, plus a 5-thousand dollar grant.
Rangers say they will use the money, to help local military families. "We've got a program called post to parks which we initiated at the park to help bring military families up to national park areas," say Park Ranger, Jeff Wolin, "so if we win we're going to get a 5-thousand dollar grant which is going to help us bring up some of those families."
The voting process closes Friday. Here is the link to vote.
