An Introduction

Hi there. My name is Melissa and I am a Black Canyon Friend. I am thrilled to be the new Executive Director of this organization and look forward to seeing what a lot of friends acting together on behalf of a national park can accomplish.

I have rappelled in, hiked in, driven in, and explored the canyon. I ski the rim, run the Oak Flat Loop, and pursue trout at East Portal. When my husband and I decided to move to Montrose, we made that fateful, never regretted, decision after a long discussion on the South Rim. I love all national park sites, but Black Canyon of the Gunnison is my home and I love it. I will happily serve this organization to protect this place we all love.

If you have ideas for speaking events, suggestions for projects, or a story to share with us, I’ll be the one answering the contact email. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for the park and all of its users. After all, it is your national park and we’re here to be its friend.
