BIG BEND NATIONAL PARK, Texas (AP) - Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar is touring Big Bend National Park and reviving a proposal first touted by President Franklin Roosevelt to create an international park along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Salazar was in the southwest Texas park on Friday. He says he and his Mexican counterpart, Juan Rafael Elvira Quesada, should work closely to coordinate management of the conservation area.
Salazar says the United States and Mexico are "neighbors sharing a beautiful treasure."
