Educational Fee Waivers

Schools or other bona fide educational institutions (accredited, officially recognized, or tax exempt for educational purposes) may request an educational fee waiver. The fee waiver will allow qualifying groups free entry into the park for educational or scientific purposes. Fee waivers can be obtained by completing the Fee Waiver Request Application form and submitting it to the park at least 2 weeks in advance.

To request an educational fee waiver, please use the following procedure:

Mail or email (julena_campbell@nps.gov) a fee waiver request at least two weeks in advance of your planned visit. The request should be on school or educational institution letterhead and clearly state that you are requesting a fee waiver for educational purposes. For quicker response, include your fax number in the letter.

Requests should include the educational purpose of your visit, i.e., what your group will be studying during their park visit. Indicate the date(s) you are planning to visit the park and include the number of students with the ages or grade levels and the number of adults that you will be bringing.

Coatimundi

Chiricahua National Monument is home to many coati-mundi. Because the Chiricahua mountain range is situated at a biological cross-roads, species from Mexico's Sierra Madres make their way north. They are trapped here in our ‘sky-islands,’ though, by ‘seas’ of desert which they cannot cross.
