Who could blame the canyon’s condors, cougars, and chuckwallas for having a chip on their shoulder? After all, the average visitor is drawn to the park more for the dramatic scenery than the wide array of fauna.
However, once the visual astonishment begins to wane, most realize that the myriad furred and feathered inhabitants of the park are equally worthy of their fascination. On November 1st, the National Park Service has a fun-filled day planned to share these marvelous animals and their stories with the public during the inaugural “Celebrate Wildlife Day.”
Free programs, exhibits, “touch tables”, and activities will be offered by NPS biologists and interpretive staff for people of all ages. This is the perfect opportunity to deepen your appreciation of the grandest of canyons, and mingle with other canyon enthusiasts of all shapes, sizes, and species.
