The Chimney Rock Interpretive Association (CRIA) invites community members to join us for the free annual CRIA Volunteer Training on April 24 at the Tennyson Building Event Center located at 197 Navajo Trail Drive. 

CRIA offers a great, in-depth training program in a fun environment to anyone interested in joining our team of volunteers.

Attendees must check in for training between 8:30 and 9 a.m. Lunch will be provided. As per current restrictions for Archuleta County, masks must be worn indoors when not eating. 

After lunch, attendees will drive to Chimney Rock National Monument for on-site training until approximately 3:30 p.m. Anyone planning to attend must call the CRIA office at 731-7133 to register. After training, new volunteers will receive extended training with a veteran volunteer at the site until they are comfortable in their new positions.

CRIA is a nonprofit organization which operates the interpretive program at Chimney Rock National Monument under a participating agreement with the USDA Forest Service/San Juan National Forest. For more information about the Chimney Rock 2021 season of events. Please visit
