There is quite a story to be told about the people and places in the San Luis Valley. This is a story with roots not only in southern Colorado, but the southern United States. It’s a national story about how our country was formed. It’s a story about the creativity, ingenuity, and resilience of the first Hispano, railroad, and agricultural communities in our country.

We are now offering memberships to the Sangre de Cristo National Heritage Area(SdCNHA) in 2018. As a Member of the SdCNHA you help us with our mission to preserve, promote and protect these critically important places and stories. Your financial support enables us to serve as the local “glue” binding our cultural, historic, and natural resource communities together. Your membership contribution will match federal and state grant funding to enable us to provide high-quality local programs, attractive and historic information for the people of our communities and those visiting our communities. In the past we have funded scholarships to local students, educational workshops, restorations to local historic buildings, funding for local water and land preservation organizations, funding for local geological studies, the documentation of local oral histories, music and art and much more.

Make a donation today for yourself, your family or in honor of someone who has loved or lived in the heritage area. See your donation reinvested directly into our communities to serve as a source of much needed funding for all our initiatives to build partnerships in education, interpretation, stewardship, heritage development and tourism promotion throughout the region.  We thank you for your ongoing support.
