Who We Are

Hovenweep National Monument is part of the Southeast Utah Group, a group of four parks that share some staffing and administrative functions. The Southeast Utah Group includes Arches and Canyonlands national parks and Hovenweep and Natural Bridges national monuments. Contact us.


Superintendent's Office

The superintendent is the highest official at Hovenweep National Monument, in charge of managing all park staff and operations.



The administration division manages budget, contracting, concessions and permits, human resources, park planning, property management, telecommunications, and information technology. Some administration functions are managed at the park; others operate in our administrative office south of Moab, Utah.


Facilities Management

The Facilities Management division operates and maintains roads, trails, buildings, utilities, vehicles, and grounds. We ensure public safety in facilities. We also manage many building and rehabilitation projects attached to park facilities.


Interpretation and Visitor Services

The interpretation and visitor services division manages entrance stations and fee collection; the park's volunteer program; and signs, exhibits, and websites. Park rangers in this division also present guided walks, talks, hikes, evening programs, educational activities, and other special programs.


Resource Stewardship and Science

The resource stewardship and science division studies, inventories, and monitors a wide range of park resources, including cultural sites and structures, geological features, vegetation, wildlife, water, and air quality. We also manage the park's archives and museum collections.


Visitor and Resource Protection

The visitor and resource protection division is responsible for law enforcement and visitor safety, emergency medical services, and search and rescue.
