Support Your Park
Visits to national parks inspire people to plan another trip, to tell their friends, and often, to ask how they can help.
We love that!
Public support is a critical component in the management of National Park Service lands. No other federal agency relies as heavily on the generosity and kindness of its visitors, and we thank you for your past support and look forward to future partnerships.
From volunteering as an information assistant in our visitor center to shopping in our bookstore, there are many ways that the public can support Fort Union National Monument.
"National Park Service."
Contributions continue to make a significant difference and we welcome and are grateful for your support!
Did You Know?
The community of Loma Parda, a few miles from Fort Union, was a favorite hangout for soldiers. Julian Baca's dance hall, with its casino and cantina, was the center of social life. Two orchestras played in 12-hour shifts and soldiers danced with local women.
