The Carlsbad Caverns Guadalupe Mountains Association (CCGMA) is a private, non-profit organization whose main objectives are to provide interpretation for the park visitor and to support the purposes and mission of the National Park Service at Carlsbad Caverns National Park, Guadalupe Mountains National Park, and the lands related to them in New Mexico and west Texas. To date, CCGMA has donated over $3.5 million to both Carlsbad Caverns and Guadalupe Mountains National Parks.

The goals of CCGMA are accomplished through educational programs using a variety of educational media and scientific investigations resulting in a greater appreciation of those resources being conserved for this and future generations.

Consider joining CCGMA. Membership cost per year is $25.00. As a member you will receive a 15% discount on all purchases. This discount is extended to several cooperating associations of other national parks as well. You will also receive the CCGMA newsletter and the VIsitor Guide for Carlsbad Caverns and Guadalupe Mountains National Parks (2 issues per year). In addition to these benefits, you will receive a free book on the works of artist Clark Cox or a coffee mug. Most importantly, your contribution helps further our mission of providing aid to these parks. CCGMA has two retail bookstore outlets located at Carlsbad Caverns and Guadalupe Mountains.

Charitable contributions designated to support the Guadalupe Mountains National Park interpretive program to produce and upgrade publications, or provide equipment to improve visitor services can also be made to CCGMA.
