Green in the Red Rocks
In a box canyon of towering cliffs, Enchantment sits on land sacred to Native Americans. The resort is committed to honoring and preserving this land and its heritage, both through a partnership with the National Forest Service and through a widespread "greening" program.
This includes recycling everything from paper to batteries, purchasing local goods and services to reduce the carbon footprint, offering organic wines and key-cards made from renewable crops, using biodegradable cleaning agents, composting landscape cuttings, and far more. Five-year goals encompass solar conversion and new energy management systems, and the cutting-edge technology of a Micro Auto Gasification System is already in place.
Equally important to celebrating the earth and its resources is a deep and abiding respect for the land surrounding the resort, which led Enchantment to establish the Boynton Canyon Preservation Fund in cooperation with the National Forest Service. As trail guides lead guests along canyon trails and provide information about flora, fauna and Native American archaeological sites, children attending Camp Coyote learn about nature in this beautiful, ecologically diverse land.
