Devils Tower Hosting Summer Events

Devils Tower National Monument has announced a series of summer activities for park visitors. Park staff worked with the Devils Tower Natural History Association to create a series that represents the history and culture of the monument.

Devils Tower Superintendent Amnesty Kochanowski said the presentations are a way to connect visitors to the diverse history of the park and surrounding area.

"All of these special presenters have a link to what's unique about the Tower, whether that's geology, cultural resources, our Native American connection and sacredness to the tower. And if it's not a very clear connection to Devils Tower, the special presenter has a link to the greater National Park Service," she said.

The presentations are a way for visitors to connect with the park in a new way, said the park's Acting Chief of Interpretation Annie Gilliland.

"People have had various relationships with the Tower for thousands of years. What's really interesting about this place is how those different relationships connect, or how we make sure everybody can still find their importance with this geologic and cultural resource at the same time," Gilliland said.

The events will take place on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:30 throughout the summer until Labor Day. Visitors can also camp at the park.
