As we all know New Mexico is known for its many breathtaking sights. That is one of the many reasons I am proud to be a New Mexican. One of those sights is Chaco Canyon with its ancient pueblos. It is so important that it has been established as a World Heritage Site by the United Nations!

Unfortunately, oil and gas companies want to frack right outside this historical site. This would really endanger this amazing area by ruining the landscape.

We must act now to protect our cultural heritage. I call to action the Bureau of Land Management about Chaco Canyon, so we can continue to enjoy the beauties of the Land of Enchantment!
