National Park Service's Southeast Arizona Group = visitors, money, jobs.
A new National Park Service (NPS) report shows that 201,211 visitors in 2010 spent $8,076,000 in the group's three parks, and in nearby communities. The Southeast Arizona Group includes Chiricahua National Monument, Coronado National Memorial, and Fort Bowie National Historic Site. The spending at these three parks supported 110 jobs in several local areas.
Lane Baker, a 25-year veteran of the federal government, has been named superintendent of the National Park Service's (NPS) Southeast Arizona units: Coronado National Memorial, Chiricahua National Monument, and Fort Bowie National Historic Site. She will assume her new duties on March 25.
In honor of the historic event of Arizona's Centennial, Chiricahua National Monument will offer fee-free entry on Tuesday, February 14th. Visitors who arrive on the anniversary of Arizona's statehood will be allowed to enter free of charge. Those who plan to spend time beyond February 14th will need to pay the regular entrance fee for the remainder of their stay. Park visitors are reminded that the fee-free designation applies only to entrance fees and does not include camping fees or other user fees. The park entrance station will have Senior and Annual Passes available for those who wish to purchase them.

Did You Know?
The bush with the pretty red bark is manzanita, which is Spanish for little apple. These small berries are an excellent food source for black bears, coati-mundi, and many birds at Chiricahua National Monument.
