(From the Zephyr Archives) An Interview with Harvey Wickware, Canyonlands Park Superintendent, in 1989…by Jim Stiles

An excerpt:

Wickware: I think the first 25 years have definitely been on the side of protection; while that is good, it has some ramifications that I think are bad. To err on the side of protection, I think we have failed to provide services for visitors. I don’t think the park was set aside to protect and not accommodate reasonable numbers of visitors, with the visitation to Canyonlands to date. I don’t think that the timidity we’ve had, not just the National Park Service, but the State and community and all interested groups have done justice to the visitor. I think the first 25 years have been marked by an overemphasis on not doing things in the park the way they should be done in a park as far as development’s concerned
