From the Summits:
At Volcanoes Day Area at Petroglyph National Monument, we learned from park rangers about the impacts people can have on historic sites and landmarks. Specifically, we learned about the impacts of vandalism in Petroglyph National Monument. The best way we can prevent this kind of damage to our cultural resources is to promote tourism and make others aware of the immense educational value of them. In doing so, people will be motivated to preserve and protect them for future generations!"
