Our History

The Colorado National Monument Association was first incorporated in 1964 as the Colorado – Black Canyon Natural History Association. In 1977 that organization was reorganized, and we acquired our current name, Colorado National Monument Association.


Colorado National Monument Association (CNMA), a nonprofit organization, exists solely to assist and support Colorado National Monument. Proceeds from our retail operations, memberships, and donations support the monument’s educational, interpretive, and scientific programs.


The tranquility and serenity of the monument cannot help but impress all who stand and listen to its quiet beauty. Come and enjoy Colorado National Monument today.
