The Southwest office, covering Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah, includes an astounding wealth and diversity of National Parks, Monuments, Historic Sites and Trails. There are 74 national park units in this vast region. Extraordinary landscapes include the high country peaks of Rocky Mountain National Park; the wickedly beautiful canyons and red rock of the Colorado Plateau such as Arches and the Grand Canyon; the rich, textured arid lands of the Sonoran Desert at Saguaro National Park and Organ Pipe Cactus; and the rich ancestral history of indigenous cultures protected at Mesa Verde and Chaco Canyon. The Southwest Region offers countless opportunities to hike, raft, explore, learn, and contemplate.

The priceless resources of the National Parks, however, are threatened. Proposed coal mines, oil and gas development, and coal-burning power plants threaten Bryce, Arches, and Canyonlands National Parks. Development pressures impact many parks, including Walnut Canyon National Monument and Zion National Park. Chronic funding shortages have a devastating impact on parks—limiting interpretation, curtailing maintenance, and restricting research and park protection.
