What We Do


Our department combines the efforts of many varied disciplines to make Park County a better place for citizens and visitors alike. We work to protect the natural, historic, and prehistoric resources of Park County and responsibly share them with visitors through our Historic Preservation, Tourism, and Community Development programs. Our efforts are guided by the Park County Historic Preservation Advisory Commission (PCHPAC) and the South Park National Heritage Area Board. We also work closely with the Office of Recreation Development to achieve our mutual goals.
