Please join Glen Canyon National Recreation Area this Saturday, September 26, as we celebrate National Public Lands Day by waiving entrance fees and cleaning-up Lake Powell.

Saturday morning from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., Glen Canyon will host a volunteer graffiti and litter removal project at the Chains area, a popular day use and swimming site located near the Glen Canyon Dam on Lake Powell. Volunteers interested in participating are encouraged to call 928-608-6352 for more details.

The activities continue Saturday evening when the Glen Canyon Lecture Series presents a special advanced screening of highlights from the new Ken Burns mini-series, The National Parks: America’s Best Idea. Ken Burns, a well-known documentary filmmaker, worked nearly ten years to complete his film, which celebrates the birth of America’s national parks. The hour-long advanced screening will begin at 7:00 p.m. in Page City Park on the grass by the Page Youth Center. Admission is free and open to the public. The 12-hour, six-episode national parks film series begins Sunday, September 27, on PBS.

For more information on these events, please contact Glen Canyon NRA at 928-608-6200, or the Glen Canyon Natural History Association at 928-608-6359.
