Thanks for posting this, one of the many interesting aspects of this report is that the invited experts (about 350 of them), only 50% of them visited 10 or more world heritage sites!

Hmn. US Americans, what to expect? ... How can you be an expert on world heritage sites if you haven't seen any?

At least they found loads of sites, even though I would assume they should assume more National Parks still.

Most of these sites were submitted by public comment, more than one-hundred. These experts, perhaps not of world heritage, but of historic preservation, archeology, etc began narrowing down and selecting the most relevant sites which are missing on the world heritage list, via gap study.

This report only refers to cultural heritage or CLs.

The sites for the Civil Rights Movement Sites on the US tentative list were just put under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service. This might help move along its nomination.

It appears that Otero county in new Mexico has a ban on world heritage sites. First time I have heard about such an ordinance.

Jeepers, that article could do with an editor. But if I've read it correctly it seems that anyone working on it becoming a World Heritage Site could be liable for 90 days in prison? Does that mean that if it is put forward in 2019, President Trump will be getting better acquainted with the New Mexico penitentiary?

But I guess that is the only way to stop White Sands National Monument from be used by the One World Government to promote Agenda 21 and vaccinating all our young through chemtrails, or something like.

It sounds like the Senators in New Mexico were ignoring her. Otero County's population is 65,000 people.

The National Park Service website has officially been updated with the new nominations. I expect the UNESCO website to be updated shortly.

From the article: "There are, in addition, some initiatives underway to develop nominations consisting of properties in more than one country that could potentially include U.S. properties. If any of these initiatives progresses to a suitable point, the Department of the Interior may consider adding a very limited number of properties to the Tentative List to participate in such a multi-country nomination effort."

I'd like to think this might bode well for a Klondike extension, since Skagway and the Chilkoot Pass played such important roles during the gold rush.

New about Charleston's bid, which is still active. Includes thoughts from the national park service about the challenges that face American urban landscapes.

That would also probably help the chance of a "Camino Real de Tierra Adentro" extension that could also span sites up to Santa Fe. Of course, if there wasn't someone like Trump in the White House.

I notice that there are 11 locations listed for the Frank Lloyd Wright Buildings now - the 11th is S. C. Johnson & Son, Inc., Administration Building and Research Tower, Racine, Wisconsin

Did we miss that one before, or is this an update of the Tentative List?

As far as I remember, his has always been there, but when they sent the dossier it was not included.

Is it possible to add 2 additional components to the California Current Conservation Complex?

Virtually every km of coastline between these 2 points is nominated. They are both explicitly stated in the UNESCO description as the starting and ending points to the nomination.

Point Arena (North)
Point Piedras Blancas (South)

Attacks on the UN are being condoned by the current Administration in the US. This does not bode well for US funding in regards to UNESCO.

"Slashing UN Funding"
