Aztec Ruins National Monument's draft Vegetation Management & Cultural Landscape Preservation Maintenance Plan/Environmental Assessment is available for public comment through November 8, 2012. The Plan details the park's long-term goals related to the management of the vegetation throughout the Monument, which includes restoring some areas to native vegetation. It also guides the staff in how to best manage the two Cultural Landscapes within the Monument that have been determined to be eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
