The National Park Service is inviting all interested residents of the Four Corners region to join in honoring the 75th anniversary of the designation of the Hovenweep National Monument.
The special commemoration will be held Monday, March 2, at the Hovenweep Ranger Station. Ceremonies, which begin at 11 a.m., will include a welcome by John Cook, intermountain regional director of the National Park Service, and a special historical talk by Ian "Sandy" Thompson, author and the former director of research at the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center.There will also be tours of the Square Tower archaeological site following the commemoration ceremony.
Those interested in attending should park either in the campground or along the monument's entrance roadway. There will also be a shuttle van available for those who need assistance.
In case of inclement weather conditions, National Park Service officials suggest calling the park's cellular phone voice mail number (1-970-749-0510) for information, which will be updated daily.
