Founding Documents

Natural Bridges National Monument was established by Presidential Proclamation no. 804 (35 Stat. 2183) signed by President Theodore Roosevelt on April 16, 1908.

Park boundaries were amended through later presidential decrees, including Proclamation no. 881 (September 25, 1909), Proclamation no. 1323 (February 11,1916), and Proclamation no. 3486 (August 14, 1962).


Guidance Documents

In 2013, the park developed a Foundation Document to update a shared understanding of the park's purpose, significance, resources and values. This document can serve as a foundation for future planning and management decisions.
