Preserving Grand Canyon National Park

Grand Canyon National Park Fiscal Year 2009/2010 Accomplishment Report

From restoration work and trail improvements to additional visitor facilities, a lot has been done at Grand Canyon National Park during the past two years.

“The genesis of these accomplishments starts in 2007 with a series of goals set for the park by the National Park Service Intermountain Region and Washington Offices and the Grand Canyon management team,” outgoing Grand Canyon Superintendent Steve Martin told National Parks Traveller.

With more than four million visitors a year, the park faces by many difficult issues when it comes to handling those visitors while also preserving the region’s natural, cultural and historic resources. A 44-page booklet just released by the park provides “snapshots” of many of the projects undertaken in the park during the past two years.

Among the accomplishments outlined in the Grand Canyon National Park Fiscal Year 2009/2010 Accomplishment Report (Downloadable PDF) are:

* Improvements at the Grand Canyon Visitor Center

* Rehabilitation of Inner Canyon Corridor trails

* Restoration to the Desert View Watchtower

* State-of-the-art photovoltaic panels at the Grand Canyon Visitor Center and other “greening” improvements

* Educational programs to inspire the next generation of environmental stewards
