Coronado National Memorial's location reminds us that the United States and Mexico are inextricably linked. Even though a visible, physical and political boundary is evident, living things continue to cross freely everyday. The Memorial has partnered with Sister Parks in Mexico to encourage understanding and stewardship of our shared resources.
