The Crow Canyon Archaeological Center has been a proud part of the Cortez community for 35 years—and now we’re coming downtown!
Crow Canyon Connection at the Colorado Welcome Center will be dedicated to Crow Canyon Archaeological Center merchandise and books, as well as American Indian jewelry and a wide variety of Cortez and Colorado souvenirs, along with cold beverages and snacks.
In addition, Crow Canyon Connection will also offer a convenient space for educational events, meetings, and exhibits highlighting the region’s cultural and archaeological resources. Crow Canyon staff will on hand during business hours to answer questions about Crow Canyon, as well as offer visitors the opportunity to sign up for our array of educational and travel programming.
“We are excited to be in this location on Main Street in Cortez to increase awareness for Crow Canyon, as well as support the Cortez community’s efforts to provide visitors to our area with additional activities to learn about the full scope of the rich cultural history of the area,” says Deb Miller, Director of Campus Services at Crow Canyon.
The Colorado Welcome Center, located at 928 E. Main Street in Cortez, offers free coffee, internet access, maps and information about local and regional attractions, restrooms, and RV parking.
