Celebrate the National Park Service's 100th anniversary and "Find Your Park" at Mesa Verde National Park during National Park Week, April 16 through 24. Entrance fees will be waived the entire week.
Park Superintendent Cliff Spencer says "National Park Week is a great time to visit Mesa Verde. Many plants begin their spring bloom, the days are pleasant, and trails are dry enough for a leisurely hike."
The park will also off "behind the scenes" curation tours of the Visitor and Research Center on April 16 (9:00 am) and April 20 (10:00 am). These free tours are one hour in length and are limited to 10 people. Call 970-529-4612 to register.
National Park Week is a great opportunity to explore the countless ways there are to #FindYourPark. Launched in March 2015, Find Your Park/Encuentra Tu Parque is a public awareness and education movement to inspire people from all backgrounds to connect with, celebrate, and support America's national parks and community-based programs. Celebrating the National Park Service Centennial and setting the stage for the Service's next 100 years, #FindYourPark invites people to discover and share their own unique connections to our nation's natural landscapes, vibrant culture, and rich history.
