Dinosaur National Monument Superintendent Favors Law Enforcement, Maintenance, Interpretation Over Paleontology

Check out this great article by Kurt Repanshek over on National Parks Traveler; it makes many VERY good points regarding the DINO issues (see my other blog post below).

"Independent researchers long have worked in the park system, and many in collaboration with Park Service scientists. Nevertheless, when a park dismantles its science staff and outsources its curatorial responsibilities, isn't it cutting at the core of its mission?"

Be sure to check out Kurt's first article also, Dinosaur National Monument Cutting Paleontology Staff.
