MPNHP Superintendent Kris Kirby speaks at the May 27 gathering. She and U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich highlight to the crowd how national parks impact the local economy and help support small businesses. Through Heinrich’s work on the Energy and Natural Resources committee, he has helped pass legislation to establish the Manhattan Project National Historical Park in 2015. The park will conserve historic sites and artifacts that played a key role in the dawn of the nuclear era, and help tell the story of the creation of the world’s first atomic bomb and its consequences for society.
