Jonathan Neal, who works in Los Alamos but lives about a mile away from the Valles Caldera National Preserve, was a typical participant at a public meeting Thursday.

Along with more than 50 others who came out to Fuller Lodge, he had an experienced view of the federal property that was the subject.

“My family has operated an independent web site devoted to the Caldera – whose address is VallesCaldera.com – for ten years now, since before the Valles Caldera National Preserve was even created,” he said, reading his comments into the record. “We've watched the preserve for a long time now.”  

He was also typical of many others at the meeting in his basic conclusions.

“The Preserve was designed to be an experiment in land management, but due to the failures inherent in this legislative structure that many people throughout New Mexico have observed for the past decade,” he said. “We believe that the National Park Service, an agency of professional public land managers, should operate the Caldera as a National Park Preserve.”
