Aztec Ruins National Monument Hosts 25th Anniversary World Heritage Celebration
In 1987 Aztec Ruins National Monument was made a UNESCO World Heritage site as part of the Chaco Culture designation to recognize the uniqueness of the archeological sites protected in the park.
The 25th anniversary celebration will bring renewed attention to the honor of World Heritage designation. The high point of the day will be a presentation by National Geographic Fellow Jonathan Tourtellot on the history and importance of World Heritage.
