Preserving Our Heritage
El Morro National Monument
You may wonder what is being done to preserve the inscriptions. The National Park Service hopes to delay their deterioration for as long as possible by monitoring and treating threatened inscriptions and the rocks in which they are carved.
When the loss of an inscription is imminent, National Park Service conservators may:
• use grout to fill holes, keeping out water.
• strengthen loose rock around eroding inscriptions with consolidents.
• secure rock slabs with drilled in pins.
Erected by National Parks Service, U.S. Department of the Interior.
