Our Vision

We help protect and preserve Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Rainbow Bridge National Monument, Grand Staircase–Escalante National Monument and other
public lands of the Colorado Plateau through providing education and philanthropy.

The Association operates interpretive sales at seven visitor centers throughout the Colorado Plateau. Throughout the year programs provide learning experiences for people seeking in-depth information from experts in diverse environmental fields. Notable publications, offering natural and cultural history education, are produced sharing great discoveries by public lands partners.

Memberships to the organization supports the Association's efforts to connect people to public landscapes and its partners. The Association manages donation funds for agency partners in the areas of Science, Historic Preservation, Trails, Education, Every Kid in the Park, Dark Skies, Visitor Services and more.

Glen Canyon Natural History Association partners with the National Park Service, Bureau of land Management, the Bureau of Reclamation, local and state agencies to support their educational goals.
