Bryce Point to Peekaboo Connector Trail Closure
Due to a large rockslide, the connecting trail from Bryce Point to Peekaboo Loop is closed. Trail will be reopened once repairs are made. The Peekaboo Loop is open, but must be accessed from Sunset or Sunrise Point.
Backcountry Campsite Closures
Due to bear activity at select campsites in Bryce Canyon's backcountry, multiple backcountry campsites have been closed until further notice: Sheep Creek, Swamp Canyon, Natural Bridge, Iron Spring, Corral Hollow, Riggs Spring and Yovimpa Pass.
The GEODETECTIVE program is here to assist you in teaching earth history and physical earth science. All activities are written to encourage deductive and inductive reasoning through hands-on discovery learning. National Park Service resources are used to reinforce learning.
There are 6 units.
Each unit has multiple activity plans which include:
Professor Allister Holmes McFragilis leads a group of creatures which will guide students toward additional resources which will support each unit.
Students can become official GEODETECTIVE members and receive a member patch.
Discovery Chests are available for five of the units. These chests have materials which support GEODETECTIVE activities.
