Forest Service testifies on Chimney Rock National Monument proposal

U.S. Forest Service Associate Chief Mary Wagner offered testimony before the House Committee on Natural Resources in support for a bill that would establish Chimney Rock on the San Juan National Forest in southwest Colorado as a national monument.
“The Forest Service values archaeological and cultural resources and considers it part of the agency’s mission to preserve and interpret them for the public,” Wagner said. “We believe the rich history, spectacular archaeological, cultural, scientific, and scenic resource values merits the designation of the area as a national monument.”
