1. Groundbreaking for the Pine Springs Visitor Center Marker
Inscription. We are not recognizing development. We are recognizing another important link in bringing others to know and love this land, its plants and animals, and its human history. When completed, this new visitor center will greet many who will, for the first time, learn about a place where humankind is only a visitor, and where wilderness is a vivid reminder of the chain of life the planet must depend on for survival.

Karen Wade, Superintendent of Guadalupe Mountains National Park, 1988.
