Happy Spring! Thank you to all of the volunteers who have been out in the monument with us and our partners from Canyons of the Ancients National Monument for volunteer trainings this past month.

We really enjoyed seeing you in person! The trainings for Trail Information Specialist program and Wilderness Study Area Monitoring program went great. A fabulous group of our 2022 Cultural Site Stewards had a wonderful field trip going out to a few spectacular sites.

Please see details below for information about our EARTH DAY CLEANUP on Friday, April 22 and use this link to sign up.

Hope that you are all enjoying the spring conditions. What a magnificent season to be in the canyons of southwest Colorado! Thank you for supporting our efforts to protect and inform about your local public lands.
