  • Mesa Verde Specialty License Plate
    Mesa Verde Specialty License Plate

    The Mesa Verde Foundation is proud to lead the effort to propose the creation of a new Colorado specialty license plate to support Mesa Verde National Park.

    Why the Park needs your support for the license plate:

    • Budget Needs. Entrance fees and the federal budget appropriations fall short of the park’s needs. Mesa Verde National Park has a deferred project deficit of $57 million some of which is needed to stabilize Spruce Tree House and Cliff Palace cliff dwellings.
    • Mesa Verde contributes to the Colorado economy. The nearly 600,000 visitors to Mesa Verde each year spend over $55 million in communities near the park. That spending supports more than 800 jobs in the local area and had a cumulative benefit to the local economy of $66 million.
    • Park recognition. Nestled in the Four Corner region of Colorado, the Mesa Verde National Park License plate will spread the word about this unique Colorado destination.

    Our goal is to collect 3,500 signatures by December 1 from Colorado residents who own a vehicle to put our application in front of the Colorado legislature in 2019. Click HERE  to show your support of this national treasure by signing our petition today!
