CNHA General Fund
General donations to CNHA are targeted for educational and interpretative programs such as Canyon Country Outdoor Education (CCOE), which conducts science-based field trips with local school groups to Arches and Canyonlands National Park, Hovenweep and Natural Bridges National Monument and other areas.
Donations to the Discovery Pool benefit science and research on the Colorado Plateau. In 2013, over $58,000 has been granted for projects that will study: perishable artifacts, documentation of Pueblo I sites, Hovenweep sherd collections, distance and temperature effects on pika forage. Since it was established in 2007, CNHA has awarded more than $285,600 in Discovery Pool Grants.
The Clay and Karen Whitaker Fund
The Clay and Karen Whitaker Fund has been established in memory of Dr. Clay Whitaker and his wife Karen, parents of Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack, Stephen Whitaker, David Whitaker, and Katherine Whitaker. The Whitakers loved the outdoors and spent many happy times hiking, camping and exploring the backcountry. Canyonlands and Arches National Parks were important places to the Whitaker family.
Donations to this fund will assist the educational and scientific research efforts of the National Park Service in these areas. Canyonlands Natural History Association is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt educational organization. Your generous donation is tax deductable to the extent of the law (Federal Tax I.D. #87-0274120).
