Engaging with Partners

We don’t do science alone. We lead a research partnership on Grand Canyon’s north rim that brings together universities, non-profits, agencies, and local citizens. Find out more about the Research and Stewardship Partnership ›

Linking Science to our Lives

We make maps that could pass as art; we share scientific results in ways everyone can understand; we use facts to deepen connections to beautiful places. In the end, scientific information translates into protection and restoration only if people feel connected to the home they share with so many others. Volunteer with us ›

Adapting to Climate Change

After identifying climate impacts on the North Rim Ranches, we are crafting a science-based strategy for adaptation and management. Our priorities are to protect and restore wildlife, water resources, and reduce threats from invasive exotic species. See our report ›

Reconnecting Wildlife Habitat

With the help of volunteers using camera traps, we know where mountain lions and bighorn sheep are roaming. With such knowledge, we can identify management strategies that restore critical habitat connections. Read an intern's personal account ›

Science - Why It's Important

Why It's Important

Science cannot, by itself, solve complex conservation issues. But facts can help resolve values-based disagreements and create a base for people seeking common ground. Collaborative research done with volunteers, interns, students, professional researchers, and land managers expands knowledge, relationships, and ownership of solutions.
