-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

The staff, projects and entire operation at Bandelier National Monument are of such quality that incoming Superintendent Brad Traver doesn’t plan to make many changes.Traver served on the Vanishing Treasures Program board in 2006-07 with predecessor Darlene Koontz,  who accepted a post in California. The program worked to protect and preserve archeological sites throughout the West.“I know Darlene and have a great deal of respect for her,” Traver said.He has no preconceived ideas coming in but said he wants to evaluate what’s going on and tweak whatever may need it.Traver stressed how impressed he is at the end of his fourth week on the job with the quality of the Bandelier staff.“I find a very talented and knowledgeable staff, many are experts in their fields and I have a great deal of respect for them and the projects they already have underway here,” he said.Since accepting the job, Traver has taken a position on the board of the Valles Caldera. He also plans to get out and meet people in the area as quickly as possible.“I plan to meet with the pueblos, the community and our neighbors in the Forest Service,” he said.
