Tour And Service Providers Adopt Canyons Throughout Lake Powell
June 1, 2016
Lake Powell visitors can expect less trash to spoil the pristine scenery this summer. This is thanks to local tour and service providers adopting canyons throughout Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. As canyon stewards, these companies will remove trash from their canyons throughout 2016.
"I admire the dedication and ingenuity of our Adopt-a-Canyon partners in combating trash by boat, kayak and even on foot throughout this vast and remote park," said Acting Glen Canyon National Recreation Area Superintendent Billy Shott. "Beyond providing tours and vessel services throughout the park, they are improving resource conditions for all to enjoy."
Adopted canyons and areas include the following:
Antelope Canyon – Lake Powell Paddle Boards
Bullfrog Bay and Hobie Cat Beach – Ticaboo Resort
Coyote Gulch – The Wildland Trekking Company
Escalante River and its tributaries – National Outdoor Leadership School
Face Canyon – McNabb Fishing Guide Service
Fence Canyon and Harris Wash – Aspiro
Gunsight Canyon, Cookie Jar Butte, Kane Creek Canyon and Padre Canyon - Lake Powell Refrigeration, Heating and A/C
Halls Crossing area beaches – Four Corners Adventures
Labyrinth Canyon – Hidden Canyon Kayak
Muley Point and Cedar Point – Far Out Expedition
Neon Canyon and Ring Trail Canyon – Zion Adventure Company
Warm Creak Road to Alstrom Point – Seeking Treasure Adventures

The Adopt a Canyon program is part of a community and partner collaboration to improve resource conditions at Glen Canyon National Recreation Area during the National Park Service Centennial. For more information visit http://www.nps.gov/GLCACentennial.
