Glen Canyon NRA has developed the Graffiti Removal and Intervention Team (GRIT) program in order to remove non-historical graffiti from rock faces and sandstone walls, and from shoreline areas within the park. Graffiti is removed using water and wire brushes.

Take a five day trip aboard the “True GRIT” houseboat. Trips leave from Antelope Point Marina, Arizona. Destinations will vary on each trip. Trips are limited to 4 people plus the captain. Crew members need to bring personal gear, breakfast and lunch for all days, and provide one dinner for all crew members on one night of the trip.

Prevent the spread of ugly graffiti. Help restore the beauty of the cliffs on the shores of Lake Powell. Join the Graffiti Removal and Intervention Team.

If you are interested in helping restore Glen Canyon NRA to its natural state please consider joining the GRIT team.

Please read all the information on the links thoroughly and keep in mind that it is essential the GRIT volunteers be in good physical condition and health, since duties involve walking over sometimes rough or slick terrain, lifting, and being out in the sun for prolonged periods of time.


There will be no Spring 2015 True GRIT trips.

Five men sit on sandstone around a carved-in graffiti reading Amanda Will You Marry Me. They have the tools to remove the inscription.

Why would you want to marry a lawbreaker? Graffiti is ugly and wrong.
