There is no arguing that the visual spectacle of the world’s most famous chasm is the most common headline grabber at Grand Canyon National Park. But once the eye-rubbing astonishment begins to fade, the more intimate aspects of the canyon begin to reveal themselves. None are more memorable than the myriad mammals, reptiles, birds and amphibians that inhabit the wide-ranging ecosystems found in your 1.2 million acre park.
With support from a number of park partners and sister agencies, the National Park Service will be hosting the 6th annual Celebrate Wildlife Day on May 18th on the South Rim. This popular event will include demonstrations, lectures, and the chance to get up close and personal with a few of the canyon’s signature species. All ages are sure to enjoy this free event.
