Contact: Kyle Patterson, 970-586-1363
Rocky Mountain National Park Superintendent Vaughn Baker has announced that both the Town of Grand Lake and the Town of Estes Park are the recipients of the 2006 Rocky Mountain National Park Stewardship Award. The National Park Service proudly presents the Stewardship Award to outstanding individuals and organizations that contribute significantly to the stewardship of the park and the surrounding environment. Both Towns were selected for this award in recognition of their support in advancing the long-term protection of Rocky Mountain National Park.
Superintendent Baker noted, “We are fortunate at Rocky Mountain National Park to have many great supporters. The park’s gateway communities of Estes Park and Grand Lake are wonderful neighbors. Both Towns are committed and dedicated to protect parks resources and values while providing for visitor enjoyment. Through our partnerships we have worked collaboratively with both Towns on many projects. These partnerships have produced countless benefits for the park and our mutual visitors. The benefits of our partnership extend into the future as well, as the park especially recognizes both Towns’ commitment to furthering wilderness designation for the park.”
