Greetings from Montezuma Castle National Monument

I volunteer at Montezuma Castle Monument. It is such a rewarding experience. The Castle is beautiful and we have dedicated volunteers and rangers here. I have met countless visitors from the U.S. and around the world. My major job at the Castle besides talking and giving information about the Castle, Montezuma Well, and Tuzigoot is working with the young children with the Junior Ranger program. What a pleasure that is. The children are enthused about our Park and others that they have visited and will visit in the future.

Sincerely,
Karen

“They are beautiful and belong to all people in our country. Visiting the Parks one can learn about them, their wildlife, their history and take in the beauty and how they became a park. I meet numerous folks who have visited countless parks each year and continue to bring their children to learn about them and learn to respect taking care of the Parks they visit. It is our heritage.”
