Using GPS to find your way to Hovenweep is not recommended. Since Hovenweep has 6 different units with numerous paved and dirt roads intesecting each other, GPS will send visitors to unknown locations other than to the park. Using a map is recommended.
Call for Community Artist in the Parks Applications

The National Park Service Southeastern Utah Group is currently accepting applications for the 2012 Community Artist in the Parks program.
Created in 2009, the Community Artist in the Parks program highlights the connection between a local artist and the surrounding landscape, particularly Arches and Canyonlands National Parks and Hovenweep and Natural Bridges National Monuments. The Artist creates work within the NPS units and shares his/her inspiration and creative process with visitors from around the world.
The 2012 term will begin February 27th and end November 17th. Artists must be residents of Grand or San Juan Counties.
Did You Know?
Lizards, including the colorful collared lizard, are one of the most frequently seen animals at Hovenweep. When not chasing flies or basking in the sun, they are often seen doing what appears to be push-ups. Scientists believe this and other behaviors signal dominance and facilitate courtship.
