Funding begins for East Entrance Educational Enhancements

The busy Labor Day Weekend is upon us as I write this blog. Visitors will be pouring into Colorado National Monument to hike, camp, bicycle – to play here, recreate here and learn here. It is an exciting time.

As you know, Colorado National Monument Association is the official nonprofit partner and friend of Colorado National Monument, existing solely to preserve, protect, educate and enhance the visitor experience.

At this very moment, great plans to protect, educate and enhance are moving forward for the East Entrance. Those plans include an education center, and improvements for visitor use. This endeavor will be successfully completed through joint involvement by the National Park Service and Colorado National Monument Association.

You can have a part in supporting the East Entrance Educational Enhancements through your donation to Colorado National Monument Association.

It’s the right thing to do! Support your local park – Colorado National Monument – via Colorado National Monument Association as we partner together to bring the East Entrance Educational plans and Enhancements into being. Whether you are a new member in CNMA, long-time member of CNMA, or just want to contribute to this major enhancement to Colorado National Monument (and the community), you may do so at rimrockshop.com. This donation item is set to receive donations in increments of $100. Enter 2 products for $200. “Purchase” 3 units for $300, 10 units for $1000, and so forth.

The Colorado National Monument Association is the official nonprofit partner and friend of Colorado National Monument, existing solely to preserve, protect, educate and enhance the visitor experience. This is accomplished through individual and business memberships; operating a retail store in the visitor center at Colorado National Monument; raising funds through individual gifts, business support, government and private grant funders and special events. Our focus is educational programs, especially for children, to teach them stewardship of the land, conservation, geology and ecology; and funding scientific research projects that help preserve and protect our natural, cultural and historical resources (from the 2015 membership flier).
