Mesa Verde receives active trails grant

Mesa Verde National Park has been selected to receive a 2012 Active Trails grant from the National Park Foundation.

The program promotes national parks as venues for community engagement and encourages healthy living through recreation and volunteer service on land and water trails.

The grant provided Mesa Verde with funding to improve winter trails and purchase materials for winter ecology interpretive programs in the park. Mesa Verde is joining with the San Juan Mountains Association and the San Juan Four Corners Native Plant Society to offer a series of free winter ecology hikes during the 2012-13 winter season. Four of the seven planned hikes will take place at Mesa Verde. The first hike will take place Nov. 10 in the park.

Advance reservations are required for most of the hikes. For more information, visit www.nps.gov/meve/planyourvisit/winter-activities.htm.

The National Park Foundation is the official charity of America’s national parks. For more information about it, visit www.nationalparks.org.
