The Natural History Association operates the visitor center bookstore year-round, and the sales outlet at the historic Gifford House Store and Museum during the summer season. The Association provides funding for many park projects, including research, interpretation, and maintenance.
The Capitol Reef Field Station (CRFS) is operated as a partnership between Capitol Reef National Park (CRNP) and Utah Valley University (UVU) to support learning and research concerning the Colorado Plateau ecosystem.
The Entrada Institute is dedicated to preserving and celebrating the natural, historical, and cultural heritage of the Colorado Plateau. This 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization headquartered in Torrey, Utah, hosts events that include lectures and concerts, sponsors scientific studies and creative work, and extends scholarships to local students.
The Fund works with park staff to finacially support projects that might not otherwise be funded. The Fund will support the park's dark sky interpretation program by providing funds to purchase a new telescope, an astrophotography camera that allows images to be projected on a screen, and a trailer for transportation of astronomy equipment.
