The National Park Service is seeking comment on a proposal to collect entrance fees during the winter season at Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. Fees would be the same as summer months, $15 per vehicle, $7 for pedestrians, bicyclists and motorcycles. Black Canyon annual passes remain $30 and are valid year round. Fees have not previously been collected during winter months.
The comment period for this proposal to collect fees during the winter season is open from Sept. 1-30. Please send comments to Superintendent, 102 Elk Creek, Gunnison, CO 81230 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Calling all volunteers! Fort Uncompahgre on the Old Spanish Trail has received six new tipis that will be used as outdoor classrooms in conjunction with the Nature Connection. John Hardy has volunteered to lead a group of folks who are willing to learn how to set up the tipis and pitch in where necessary.
