Respect our heritage. Even though you may see where others have defaced historic structures with writing or carving, don't add to this hideous display.
If you observe this or any other illegal activity, inform a ranger. Violations of park regulations carry penalties of up to $5,000 and/or up to 6 months in prison.
You may encounter rangers or volunteers along the way. Please follow their instructions.
