Bill introduced to change Bandelier NMon to NP&Pres

For more than a century, visitors have enjoyed the trails, wildlife, waterways, cultural artifacts and history of Bandelier National Monument, a 33,000-acre park in the Jemez Mountains, about 12 miles south of Los Alamos, that gained fame for its ancient cliff dwellings.

In an effort to increase protections for the area’s resources — and to prevent oil and gas developments there — U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich has introduced a bill that would change Bandelier’s status to a national park and preserve.
