CPE - GCNP conservation intro

The Grand Canyon is one of our nation's crown jewel national parks, but it's not protected as much as you might think. From uranium contamination to noise pollution, threats surround the Grand Canyon in every direction.

Stop Grand Canyon Tram

Since 2009, a Phoenix-based developer has been pushing the Navajo Nation to approve the Grand Canyon Escalade, a proposed development located above the sacred confluence of the Colorado and Little Colorado rivers. This development includes a 1.4-mile tramway that would shuttle up to 10,000 visitors a day to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, elevated walkway and riverside amphitheater, as well as a hotel, restaurant, and RV center above the rim.

Uranium Mining

Water is life in the Grand Canyon, but uranium mines located on public land mere miles from the North and South Rims threaten to permanently pollute the Grand Canyon landscape and the greater Colorado River. The Park Service warns hikers not to drink out of several creeks along the Tonto Trail because of contamination from a uranium mine that closed in 1969.
