Grand Canyon Earth Day



Grand Canyon National Park invites the public to celebrate the 49th anniversary of Earth Day during National Park Week fee-free day on Saturday, April 20, 2019. Visitors can participate in Grand Canyon's Earth Day celebration at the Grand Canyon Visitor Center Plaza near Mather Point from 10 am to 2 pm. All Earth Day activities are free and open to the public.

This year's Earth Day celebration will feature displays with information about current park conservation efforts and initiatives including water conservation, waste, recycling, composting, dark skies, smart transportation and biofuels.

Participating organizations include Grand Canyon's Green Team, Sierra Club, National Weather Service, Grand Canyon Trust, Valley of the Sun Clean Cities Coalition, Roots Composting, Arizona Department of Environmental Quality, NuCor Steel, and Coconino Community College. At the Visitor Center Plaza an interactive display, Ribbons of Stewardship for a Healthy and Sustainable Grand Canyon National Park, will allow visitors the opportunity to reflect and think about what they love the most about Grand Canyon.

Visitors can also participate in various litter clean-ups throughout the park.

Visitors who arrive at Grand Canyon April 20 will be allowed to enter the park free of charge. The fee-free designation does not affect fees for camping, reservations, tours or use of concessions. Interagency Senior and Annual Passes are available for purchase at the park's entrance stations. Those who plan to spend time in the park beyond April 20 will need to pay the regular entrance fee for the remainder of their stay.

Grand Canyon National Park's 2018 Earth Day Celebration is a collaborative effort between the National Park Service, Xanterra South Rim, Delaware North and the park's official non-profit partner, Grand Canyon Association. Grand Canyon's Green Team works collaboratively to increase awareness of environmental stewardship within the Grand Canyon community.
