Mesa Verde National Park is one of the 12 original UNESCO World Heritage sites and is home to thousands of ancient artifacts and remnants of Ancestral Puebloan tribes.

CLIFF PALACE PRESERVATION


Cliff Palace is the jewel of Mesa Verde National Park. Unfortunately, cracks within Cliff Palace may indicate that part

of the ruin is in danger of slipping into the canyon below and urgently needs to be stabilized.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Your entrance fee only covers a small amount of what it costs to keep Mesa Verde National Park open to the public.
 
While the number of visitors continues to climb, government funding for road and building repairs and other services has not kept pace with demand. Mesa Verde Foundation works to bridge this gap in funding.
