Come visit with Colorado National Monument staff as we host a booth each Thursday evening at the American National Bank Farmers’ Market throughout the summer. Monument staff will be available to help you plan your next visit to the Monument, answer questions, provide information about ranger guided talks and walks and Junior Ranger programs for kids aged 5-12.
Colorado National Monument Annual Park Passes, Interagency Senior Passes and Annual Passes will be for sale at the booth as well as Interagency Access Passes. Also available for purchase will be several specialty products from the Colorado National Monument Association’s bookstore located in the Monument’s Visitor Center. Among the featured items are the new colorful 2008 Colorado National Monument t-shirts and ball caps, hiking guide, the 2009 Colorado National Monument Calendar, and bottles of water with Colorado National Monument’s own logo.
