Did you know that non-native animals outnumber endemic animals in Grand Canyon National Park 23 to 20? Or that the Moapa Band of the Paiute Indians is one of the American Indian Tribes with historic ties to the Grand Canyon?
These are but a few of the facts that can be found in the 2015 Park Profile on the Grand Canyon National Park’s website (link below). This annual, comprehensive snapshot shares wide-ranging data points and updates that would be of interest to Grand Canyon aficionados and newcomers alike.
Visitation statistics, a concise timeline of park administrative history, and a list of threatened or endangered plant species are just a few examples of the information that is sure to deepen your understanding of the park and make you a hit around the campfire.
The Park Profile typically has a one year lag in its availability. The 2016 Park Profile will go public towards the end of 2017. It will include, among other things, the record visitation numbers (over six million) that Grand Canyon enjoyed during a year which marked the National Park Service Centennial.
