Rocky Mountain Nature Association Updates / Donations for Recovery Aid

Yesterday afternoon Rocky Mountain National Park shared a post on its Facebook page from the Rocky Mountain Nature Association with the following message:
Regularly scheduled bus tours and seminars will resume October 1st. We are taking registrations now. Call our office to reserve (970-586-3262) or online at You can also reserve spaces on elk tours at the park's Beaver Meadows Visitor Center.

Also, the Rocky Mountain Nature Association Field Seminars Center will offer a day-long kids camp available to Estes Park residents for their school age children. This camp will run from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm through Friday, and will provide activities like animal tracking, geocaching, story time and more! Cost will be $20 per child with advanced registration preferred. Please call 970-586-3262 during regular business hours for more information.
The Rocky Mountain Nature Association is also spearheading efforts to raise money to help with flood recovery needs within the park. On its website, the RMNA states that the park has sustained significant damage in the recent severe floods, and RMNP officials are requesting financial assistance from the RMNA. Your gift will be used for a variety of flood recovery needs, including trail, bridge and road repair, and to support the work of the American Conservation Corps in the park next summer. The park has already requested the help of crews to repair flood damaged trails and other resources for next season.

To make a donation, please mail a check made out to RMNA: Flood Recovery and send to:

Attn: Flood Recovery
PO Box 3100
Estes Park, CO 80517
