Northern Arizona Audubon: Flagstaff Zoom Program Grand Canyon Biology 101

The program deals with the early 1970s when the MNA (and Dennis – they let me come, too) was awarded a grant by the National Park Service to do baseline biological research along the Colorado River in the Grand  Canyon.

The motivation for the project centered around the Park’s need to implement a management program to administer the sudden increase in user days the rafting companies had in response to the changed and stabilized conditions created by the completion of Glen Canyon Dam in 1963. There had never been a formal biological survey made along the River and the NPS needed to know what the resources were that it was managing. We obtained two oar-powered rafts, made many hikes, and logged many hours of helicopter time.

This program concentrates on what we found in terms of human impact and what we offered as recommendations for the management of the Canyon’s deep riparian corridor.
