National Park Service Priorities


As a result of the devastating effects of Supertyphoon Pongsona, War in the Pacific has been without a museum, contact facility, or administrative offices since December 2002. Management objectives for the upcoming years are to develop a new contact facility for park visitors, establish new administrative offices for park staff, and identify a curatorial facility.

The interpretation division is increasing its interpretive tours and outreach programs to schools, and is active in local and national events such as Earth Day and National Public Lands Day. The Cultural Resource Division will conduct a 200 acre archeology survey within the park, and will continue its commitment to maintaining and rehabilitating existing cultural resources--such as its monuments and historical structures. The park recently completed its a Cultural Landscape Inventory of Asan and Agat beaches and will soon finish its first Administrative History. The Natural Resources division is actively conducting studies to document sedimentation on the island's coral reefs and documenting the effects of wildfire on tropical savannah grasslands, so the park can establish best management practices for reducing erosion. As participants in a nation-wide coral reef monitoring program, the park is dedicated to long-term monitoring of Guam's coral reefs, and is committed to completing comprehensive inventories of the park's flora and fauna.
