Petrified Forest National Park National Heritage Area

Working Toward a Little Colorado River Valley National Heritage Area

Petrified Forest National Park is a proud partner in the development of the Little Colorado River Valley National Heritage Area. Park staff will provide guidance during the designation process and subsequent management. But the park is only one of many local stakeholders who seek to preserve and promote the unique natural and cultural landscapes of this region.

Center for Desert Archaeology

A private nonprofit organization, the Center for Desert Archaeology promotes the stewardship of archaeological and historic resources in the American Southwest and Mexican Northwest. Through its Heritage Southwest program, the center builds a preservation archaeology network, combining research, preservation, and education in ways that will help stem ongoing losses to these valuable and irreplaceable resources. The Center for Desert Archaeology is the lead player in working towards the designation of a Little Colorado River Valley National Heritage Area.
