About DTNHA

First established in 1958, Devils Tower Natural History Association (DTNHA) is a not-for-profit corporation incorporated under the laws of the State of Wyoming. Cooperating Associations, like DTHNA, were chartered by the United States Congress to aid the National Park Service with historical, educational and interpretive programs. DTNHA’s mission is to promote understanding and conservation of the natural, cultural, and historical resources of the monument through education, public information, and service.

The Association publishes interpretive books, guides, and material about Devils Tower and the surrounding area. It offers publications for sale plus other items with interpretive or educational value regarding Devils Tower, the National Park Service and/or the region. 

Major projects the Association has funded or assisted with are:

  • Jr. Ranger program
  • Park library upgrading
  • Museum film preservation
  • Interpretive panels for kiosk
  • Kiosk in the visitors center island at the base of the Tower
  • Covered shelter in the picnic area
  • Audio/visual equipment used for NPS campfire programs
  • Renovation of the amphitheater facilities
  • Purchased the Radio Travelers Information System
  • Volunteer in Parks program
  • Student Conservation Association programs
  • Special programs and speakers series, including the annual Cultural Program Series
  • WPA style poster and original art work
  • Published a video, children’s activity book, children’s game, geology book
  • Climbing handbook, and bird, flower, mammal, and tree checklists
  • Substantial funding and organizational efforts for 2006 Devils Tower Centennial events (Devils Tower Centennial Committee was formed as sub-committee to DTNHA)
  • Organizational and funding support for annual Old Settlers’ Picnic
  • Electrical upgrade to picnic shelter

A Board of Directors made up of individuals from the Association's membership governs DTNHA.  Membership is open to anyone.  Yearly dues are $10.00 for individuals, $25.00 for family or $25.00 for associate membership. One of the benefits of membership is a 15% discount on items sold by the association.  Many other Cooperating Associations offer discounts to our members as well.

The Association does not sell soft drinks or other souvenir type items because it is not a concessionaire. A concessionaire pays for the privilege of operating in a National Park or Monument. There are private businesses outside the Monument boundaries that sell these items. Bottled water is currently being provided through DTNHA as a convenience to visitors, per the request of the Park Superintendent.
