CARLSBAD CAVERNS NATIONAL PARK, N.M. (AP) - Carlsbad Caverns National Park in southern New Mexico has announced adjustments to its public schedule to accommodate a visit from President Barack Obama.
    
Park spokeswoman Valerie Gohlke says the public will be able to enter the park Friday until 11 a.m. when the main gate will close. Visitors already in the park then must exit before 1 p.m.
    
Big Room cave tours will be available in the morning, but no other cave tours will be offered to the public that day.
    
The Natural Entrance will remain closed all day.
    
The park is expected to open again at 4:30 p.m. with the bat flight program taking place as usual at 7:30 p.m. in the outdoor amphitheater.
    
Obama's visit coincides with the National Park Service's celebration of its 100th anniversary.
