Supporting Mesa Verde National Park
Tours & Events
The Mesa Verde Foundation strives to provide exciting and educational experience through our tours and events. Tours provide those seeking deeper experiences at Mesa Verde National Park and the greater Ancestral Puebloan region with in-depth experiences. Our events provide ways for people to engage further with the Foundation in communities throughout the Four Corners region.
Each year, the Mesa Verde Foundation holds special tours of Mesa Verde National Park and the greater Ancestral Puebloan world. In 2018, guests enjoyed two incredible tour experiences. On September 7, the Foundation and park rangers led a horseback ride through Navajo Canyon to Spring House. While horseback rides were once common in the park in the early 20th century, today rides are very limited and the Mesa Verde Foundation is one of only a few organizations sanctioned to lead such a ride. From September 28 to October 1, the Foundation held its annual fall tour in the park with MVF board members and tour leaders Dr. Andy Gulliford, Professor of History and Environmental Studies at Fort Lewis College, and Peter Pino, tribal leader and traditional spiritual leader of the Zia tribe in New Mexico. Guests visited some of the park’s most iconic sites and gained insights and knowledge from our excellent tour leaders.
Mesa Verde Foundation is working on the 2019 tour schedule. Please check back soon for more information about tour opportunities.
The Mesa Verde Foundation holds events in communities throughout the Four Corners area, including an annual series of fundraising breakfasts in Denver, Durango and Santa Fe.
