Local governments, industries, interest groups and the Bureau of Land Management have pooled their resources to offer a $4,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the persons responsible for vandalizing an archaeological treasure in Nine Mile Canyon.

In late September, someone built a campfire near the so-called First Panel, then used charcoal to scrawl graffiti on some of the ancient Native American rock art.

The BLM intends to bring in a professional restorer to remove the damage later this year.
