  • the affected park Roy Weaver has accepted responsibility and will retire on July 2 He faces possible disciplinary action What a devastating blow for Roy He truly loves Los Alamos Bandelier and the National Park Service and wanted only to protect them This awful event follows the death of his son in December and illness of his wife that forced her to curtail her job as a teacher Truly a biblical tragedy like the trials of Job At our June 10 meeting of the Board of Trustees board members directed me to write a letter to Roy thanking him for his service and leadership During Roy s term Bandelier became a leader in ecological research and restoration resource protection management and relations with American Indians under the Native American Graves Protection Act The monument took the lead for many Park Service initiatives Roy consulted with local pueblo leaders about management of Tsankawi and hired local puebloans to do restorative work I have to add that Roy strongly supported and encouraged the efforts of the Friends of Bandelier As I have said many times the effectiveness of a Friends group is solely dependent on support from their park Grants Bandelier personnel are trying hard to get back to normal operations as visitors arrive for the summer Alan Cox supervisor of Chiricahua National Monument in southern Arizona is acting superintendent Bids are out service wide for a new superintendent a process that normally takes about three months We asked Alan if he wanted to change any of Roy s requests for our grants but he declined Our grants for the year 2000 are much the same as in the past items that would not otherwise be funded Here is the list for a total of 14 400 Once again we fund the daily summer Coffee with a Ranger sessions and share expenses of the Cultural Awareness Pueblo Crafts weekly demonstrations with Southwest Parks and Monuments and Bandelier Trading Company Also each year we purchase a craft item from one or more of the demonstrators 1 300 total Interpreters also want to mount a millennium exhibit showing 1000 years at Bandelier 1 500 We ll fund cleaning and conservation of a prehistoric hafted ax ax with handle still attached 400 The ax was spotted in Frijoles Canyon by a young visitor and recovered by rangers We will purchase a new drinking water hydrant for the far end of the Cottonwood picnic area 500 This money was donated by the Los Alamos Pathways Association in recognition of work by maintenance supervisor Carlos Gonzales who restored retaining walls for a historic trail in Los Alamos In addition the rangers need a projector for portable PC computers so they can give better presentations 2 000 Bandelier has a new staff archaeologist Rory Gauthier is from Los Alamos an archaeological expert on the Pajarito Plateau where Bandelier is located Rory worked at Chaco Canyon Glen Canyon and EI Malpais He is happy to be back home Rory

  • to retrieve it Archaeology Archaeologist Rory Gauthier asked for 6 000 to augment the 13 100 from other sources to survey 200 more acres in the park Alas Rory s summer was more than he anticipated While out surveying one team member fell and sprained her ankle so badly that they brought in the horses to carry her out Because of staffing changes and shifting of assignments this summer Rory was not able to spend any of our money Under other funding he surveyed approximately 110 130 acres and found new 12 sites He also located three large 30 to 50 rooms Classic Period sites Said Rory This was quite unexpected since I always assumed that all of the big Classic sites had been located See what happens when you assume What I like about these sites is that they still have some standing walls One site is also unusual in that it is built on the side of a small canyon and is terraced down the canyon slope using the small benches as floors and the back wall Because archaeologist Dave Hayes was acting Resource Manager during the crisis Rory had to assume duties directing the revamping of Tsankawi trails For those who haven t been to Tsankawi lately the trail has been rerouted between the entrance station and the big dance rock A ladder was installed to climb up to the dance rock The old asphalt trail has been removed the surrounding area is now an experimental treatment area to determine effective ways to restore Tsankawi s landscape to levels approximating those between 1600 and 1870 These are the first actions taken to implement the new Management Plan for Tsankawi issued in March 2000 The environmental assessment for the management plan paints a sad picture of resource degradation at Tsankawi In addition the rangers needed a projector for portable PC computers so they can give better professional presentations They did buy the projector and used it extensively for briefings on the effects of the 1996 Dome fire David Hayes also asked for 200 to develop 38 rolls of film taken during past surveys Dave reports We developed every film we had exposed and then had a Native American student archive the images I could not get all the films processed at the same place so we had three rolls returned They are awaiting future shipment with the other films taken during the summer field seasons It is a very comforting feeling knowing we have caught up with the huge backlog of film processing Also the rangers happily picked up the map cabinet offered by our board member Fletcher Catron They are waiting for Bandelier s section of the controlled storage space in Santa Fe to become available so they can begin to use it Ecological Studies We did fund butterfly research in the elk study areas in the Bandelier backcountry Butterflies are good indicators of healthy environments much like canaries in coal mines Wildlife biologist Stephen Fettig engaged
