There are currently 12 designated Landmarks in Colorado, and CNHP has been assisting the NPS to increase this number. The Hanging Lake NNL was designated in 2011 as a result of these efforts, and the official designation plaque was presented at the event.

Congratulations to National Natural Landmarks Coordinator Heather Germaine for organizing a fantastic event!
