    The Valles Caldera National Preserve (VCNP), located in the heart of the Jemez Mountains in northcentral New Mexico, is a special place for many residents of the region. The large volcanic caldera, formerly the privately owned Baca Ranch, is an 89,000-acre property known for its scenic meadows and abundant wildlife, including herds of elk. The U.S. purchased the property in 2000, and the VCNP is now managed by a private trust, many of whose members serve through presidential appointment. Discussions are currently underway in the Senate concerning a proposal to transfer the VCNP to the National Park Service for management.
