Thank you to everyone who donated to our 2018 Give! Campaign. We are thrilled to have raised $19,785 and to have been one of 93 nonprofits selected to be part of the Campaign sponsored by the Colorado Springs Independent. Give! is a year-end fundraising campaign designed to help us raise money to repair the historic stonework in Monument Valley Park. With funds raised in past Give! Campaigns and with grant funds awarded to us by the State Historical Fund, we have repaired three historic stone features in the Park. Our most recent accomplishment was the repair of the 400-foot long, Columbia Street Entrance. In past years, we repaired the Geologic Column's retaining walls and the Culebra Avenue Overlook.
In our 2018 Give! Campaign, our goal was to raise funds for the repair of the overlooks, bridges, steps and erosion problems at the Geologic Column Complex. We also plan to repair the crumbling walls of the Serpentine Wall and the floor of the Columbia Street Entrance.
Thanks also to our 2018 Matching Grant Sponsors -- Beckony Kitchen & Baths, The Bloom Foundation, Bob McGrath Construction, Central Bank & Trust/Tim and Sherry Coutts, Colorado College, Frier Planning Concepts, Joseph Henry Edmondson Foundation, ONEN, and Young Life.
Come out and enjoy a snowy day in the park. Don't miss our annual meeting in February.
Summer is the busiest time for the park. FMVP's main event during the summer is Musical Mondays in July in the Park.
From our bird and wildflower walks, to our spring cleanups, Monument Valley Park is perfect for an active spring.
