Your Dollars At Work

Your Dollars At Work
With the revenues from the bookstore, online sales and membership fees, CNMA funds programs and projects at Colorado National Monument that cannot be funded by National Park Service fees or tax dollars. These programs are very important to the community and visitors.  CNMA commits each year to fund projects specified by the park service. Since its inception in 1964, CNMA has funded over a million dollars in aid requests. You can help by becoming a member; donate now. Recent projects include:

Funding of Transportation for Local Students 
Without funding some students would not visit the monument or participate in ranger led activities. CNMA provides transportation funding to bus over 2,500 students to the monument each year. 

Installation of Water Refill Stations
Cycling the Rim Rock Drive is a unique experience. Not only do the refill stations fill a need for the cyclists, this "green" amenity eliminates 132 pounds of plastic from the waste stream each year.

Wi-Fi for Convenience and Education
CNMA installed Wi-Fi equipment at the visitor center not only for the convenience of visitors, but to also facilitate use of educational apps in the future. CNMA also covers the monthly cost of the T-1 line which powers the Wi-Fi.

Walks & Talks Series
Another program funded by CNMA includes the Spring and Fall Walks & Talks Programs geared toward local adults and families and with an emphasis on discovering more about the monument's natural and cultural heritage.

Art Exhibits and Plein Air Event
CNMA provides funding for art exhibited at the visitor center and the annual Plein Air event.  

Special Community Events
CNMA assists our NPS partners with special events such as concerts, Archeology Day events, and the annual Naturalization ceremony to name a few.
