Join park rangers as they explore the many features of Canyonlands. These short videos provide an in-depth look at a range of topics - all of which you're likely to experience first-hand when you visit the park.
Biological Soil Crust
Biological Soil Crust is a living groundcover that forms the foundation of plant life in Canyonlands and the surrounding area. Join ranger Karen Henker and learn about this critical - and fragile - component of the high desert ecosystem.
Throughout Canyonlands, naturally occurring sandstone basins called “potholes” form tiny ecosystems inhabited by a surprising collection of animals. Join ranger Karen Henker for an introduction to these animals and some their remarkable adaptations.
