The Crestone Eagle is an independent, monthly publication published by Crestone Eagle Community Media, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

Crestone Eagle Community Media (CECM) was formed to purchase, sustain and strengthen The Crestone Eagle. Our mission is to produce trustworthy local news in rural Saguache County, to promote community engagement, enhance economic development and connect residents throughout this low-income, isolated region.

CECM, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, will bolster this monthly newspaper’s well-established tradition of reporting on the area’s environmental and social concerns, the arts, and the spiritual centers that make this community so unique.

Under CECM’s guidance, The Crestone Eagle will serve an expanded geographic area and boost its online presence to keep readers updated on current affairs. By holding public officials accountable, it will challenge readers towards a deeper understanding of complex issues and encourage public participation in addressing them. Our long-term goal is to evolve an innovative model for nonprofit community journalism.
