Colorado National Monument Association (CNMA), a nonprofit organization, exists solely to assist and support the Colorado National Monument. Proceeds from our retail operations, memberships, and donations support the Monument’s  educational, interpretive, and scientific programs, helping visitors better understand and connect to this premier geologic and recreational gem in Western Colorado.

John Otto campaigned tirelessly to have the Monument set aside over 100 years ago for all to enjoy. We encourage you to uphold his vision and help protect this beautiful landscape for future generations through your CNMA membership.
