Preserve > Silva-Bañuelos lists his top five priorities

By Arin McKenna

The new executive director of the Valles Caldera National Preserve, Jorge Silva-Bañuelos, delineated his top five priorities to the board of trustees on Friday during a meeting at the Holiday Inn Express in Los Alamos.
“I truly believe that the Valles Caldera has the potential to become the premier destination in all of New Mexico. It has so much potential and so much opportunity that we just need to move together with the communities to move in that direction,” Silva-Bañuelos said.
For Silva-Bañuelos, public access is “first and foremost.”
“That certainly is going to be reconciled and aligned with our long-term goals of both public access along with the preservation and protection of our cultural and natural resources that we have at the preserve,” Silva-Bañuelos said. “But I don’t believe that those are mutually exclusive, and that’s something that we can achieve by working together to find that right balance.”
Communication is also high on Silva-Bañuelos list.
