Park employees, volunteers, and supporters - past and present - gathered one weekend in 2005 to celebrate the park's 90th anniversary. The Rocky Mountain Nature Association sponsored a reunion weekend that included free park bus tours, a special Friday night program at Beaver Meadows Visitor Center, and a Saturday evening banquet.
In 1915, Woodrow Wilson signed the act creating Rocky Mountain National Park. Rocky Mountain was to be “a public park for the benefit and enjoyment of the people of the United States . . . with regulations being primarily aimed at the freest use of the said park for recreation purposes by the public and for the preservation of the natural conditions and scenic beauties thereof." With that charge, generations of park rangers have protected the landscape's beautiful scenery and magnificent resources. But we could not do this without you, the visitors and park supporters.
As park employees, we thank you for being good stewards of Rocky Mountain National Park. We are grateful for your support of our efforts to preserve this special place.
"These are your fountains and gardens of life. Kindly assist in keeping them."
