2012 SUPERINTENDENT'S COMPENDIUM
Of Designations, Closures, Permit Requirements and Other Restrictions Imposed Under Discretionary Authority

Superintendent Marie Frias Sauter announced today that Fort Union National Monument has released an update to the park's Superintendent's Compendium of Designations, Closures, Permit Requirements and Other Restrictions Imposed under Discretionary Authority.

The Compendium is the summary of park specific rules implemented under the discretionary authority of the park Superintendent. It serves as public notice with an opportunity for public comment, identifies areas closed for public use, provides a list of activities requiring a special use permit, and elaborates on those public use and resource protection regulations that pertain to the specific administration of the park.

The complete 2012 Superintendent's Compendium can be found on the park's website at http://www.nps.gov/foun or a copy can be obtained by calling the park at 505-425-8025.

Fort Union National is located at Exit 366 off I-25 at Watrous, NM, 8 miles on State Hwy. 161, and is a unit of the National Park Service, under the administration of the U.S. Department of the Interior.

For further information, please call park administrative offices at 505-425-8025.
