RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - The National Park Service is expanding the visitor center and bookstore at Jewel Cave in western South Dakota.

The Rapid City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1fcq7j4 ) the agency is spending $671,000 for the expansion.

Officials say the 15,000-square-foot expansion will mean more space for classrooms, theater space and more displays for educational items. Plans are also in the works to convert a building alongside the visitor center to a theater.

Jewel Cave is the second-longest cave in the world, at just under 160 miles.
