Sustainability has been a part of the National Park Service Mission Statement since its inception in 1916:
Colorado National Monument is committed to conserve the natural wonders and resources within and beyond our boundaries. Colorado National Monument continues to reach for improvements everyday in all the ways we use energy, recycle materials, and conserve natural resources.
