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.
