-A A +A
By Arin McKenna

The National Park Service/Department of Energy field team’s visit this week will help determine the scope of the Manhattan Project National Historical Park.
NPS and DOE are currently working on a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) concerning the administration of facilities under the jurisdiction of DOE, including those “behind the fence” at Los Alamos National Laboratory. The MOA will determine and include provisions for enhanced public access, management, interpretation and historic preservation of the sites.
The team will tour 17 historic sites located at eight technical areas, including V-site (Fat Man research and development and Trinity Gadget assembly) and Gun Site (Little Boy research and development) and meet with LANL officials to discuss the MOA.
The field team will also tour both the Bradbury Science Museum and the Los Alamos Historical Museum, including the Hans Bethe House. They will take the Historic District Walking Tour and visit the Historical Society Archives.
Other Los Alamos site visits include the municipal building, the nature center and Tsirege Indian Ruins in White Rock.
The visit includes meetings with representatives from the Eight Northern Pueblos and Cochiti and Jemez Pueblos, the Regional Coalition of LANL Communities and with the MPNHP Advisory Committee.
