BLM Colorado manages two national monuments - Browns Canyon and Canyons of the Ancients - to preserve their historic legacies for future generations. The national monuments conserve a diversity of life and geologic features like the colorful rock outcroppings, granite cliffs and stunning mountain vistas of Browns Canyons as well as cultural resources like the historic artifacts of Ancestral Puebloan culture at Canyons of the Ancients.

For centuries, the granite cliffs, colorful rock outcroppings and stunning mountain vistas of Browns Canyon National Monument have attracted visitors from around the world. The area’s unusual geology and roughly 3,000-foot range in elevation support a diversity of life and a wealth of geological, ecological, riparian, cultural and historic resources. President Obama designated the Monument in February 2015 under the Antiquities Act of 1906.
