Would re-designation to a national park change the way the current national monument is managed?

No. National Parks are managed under the very same set of rules and regulations as a national monument. Our resource as a national park would be run exactly the same way it has been run as a national monument.

The change in designation does not change the park’s status, management, or purpose. Congress specified in the 1970General Authorities Act and the 1978 Redwood Act[39] that all units of the National Park System are to be treated on equal status, regardless of title.   An example of this is Pinnacles National monument which has undergone no management changes (other than title) following it’s re-designation as the nation’s 59th national park.
