NPS Logo


Public ownership of the Guadalupe Mountains should be assured for park and recreation purposes, The Guadalupe Mountain Ranch should be acquired by the Federal Government from its owner, Mr. J. C. Hunter, Jr. Most of it should be added to the Pratt donation containing North McKittrick Canyon to make a National Park (see map). The few parcels of land not needed for these purposes might be used in exchanges in order to acquire desirable lands not owned by Mr. Hunter, or disposed of in some other manner to the advantage of National Park Service programs.
