  • youth conservation programs

Who Are the Friends of Bandelier?

The Friends of Bandelier are private citizens who love the monument. A Board of Trustees governs our activities under a formal Memorandum of Agreement with the National Park Service. Park rangers request help on special projects and we try to meet their needs. We keep our membership informed of Friends' activities, and of key issues affecting the monument, through letters, field trips, and announcements in the local newspapers.

What Do the Friends Do?

The Friends of Bandelier try to help where we can do the most good.

Mission Statement
