  1. These types of questions should be e-mailed to all employees to respond…I fell over the web site by accident while surfing interp…Even the Centenial Information seems to be one way.
    I want to be more involved.

  2. Ed is right. A more proactive approach will increase the participation.

  3. I don’t think all national parks should be open all the time.
    Yellowstone is overrun with people whereas Big Bend is rarely visited. Glacier has limited access as does Chesapeake Bay. With the inventory of land there are many more choices than the few that are used.

  4. Look at the visitor logs at each park and historic place.
    The ones that do not average 1000 visitors a week, close them for 50 weeks a year.
    Spend the budget on the sites the public visits.
