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.
CCGMA has three retail bookstore outlets located at Carlsbad Caverns, Guadalupe Mountains, and the parks’ administrative office building located in the city of Carlsbad.
