The Great Sand Dunes National Park Quarter

The Great Sand Dunes National Park quarter is the fourth of 2014 and the 24th overall in the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve has the tallest dunes in North America as the centerpiece of the site's diverse landscape of grasslands, wetlands, conifer and aspen forests, alpine lakes, and tundra. These can be experienced through hiking, sand sledding, splashing in Medano Creek and watching wildlife. The Great Sand Dunes National Park was first established as a national site on March 17, 1932 (47 Stat. 2506).
