Celebrating Earth Day At Rocky Mountain National Park

Come celebrate Earth Day at Rocky Mountain National Park. A special Earth Day event will be held Saturday, April 20, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Beaver Meadows Visitor Center. Earth Day is a chance for the world to unite around the importance of preserving a healthy planet, and the role we play in its protection. There will be Arts & Crafts stations to create cool Earth Day artwork, and park staff and scientists will be on hand to share information on a variety of Earth Day topics. Park greenhouse tours will take place, offering a great way to see young plants springing to life. A map with directions to the greenhouse will be available at the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center.

You're invited to the Annual Sister Cities Dinner!

I am excited to host this year’s Sister Cities Dinner honoring the relationship between Estes Park and Monteverde, Costa Rica. I have been involved with this organization for many years and have enjoyed several visits to Costa Rica. The significance of the philosophy of sharing cultural experiences has never been more important to our small planet than it is now; an idea not lost as we complete our documentary, Nature of the Beasts. My involvements with the people of Costa Rica have had a profound effect on my passion for the ultimate connection between art and science in a world where national parks become a place where we all come together. We are so lucky to have an International National Parks Agreement with our Costa Rican partners.

Hidden Valley Winter Recreation Area

After many years as a ski resort, Hidden Valley Ski area closed in 1991. Since then it has transformed into a popular winter recreation in Rocky Mountain National Park!
