2013 ACTIVE TRAILS GRANT FROM THE NATIONAL PARK FOUNDATION
GLEN CANYON NATIONAL RECREATION AREA AND RAINBOW BRIDGE NATIONAL MONUMENT RECEIVE 2013 BEST IDEA GRANT FROM THE NATIONAL PARK FOUNDATION
Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Rethink Diné Power, and the San Juan Watershed Woody-Invasives Initiative will use the 2013 America’s Best Idea grant to engage Diné youth in natural and cultural stewardship activities along their beloved San Juan River. Diné youth will develop natural resource management skills through engaging in invasive plant management and native plant restoration activities, and by assisting researchers with a desert bighorn sheep study. Diné youth will restore cultural connections by participating in traditional ceremonies, learning about Diné ethnobotany, preparing traditional Diné foods, and by exploring their relationship with Mesa Verde National Park.
“It is an honor and a privilege to be selected to receive this grant. This is a great opportunity to develop the next generation of land stewards and scientists, and prepare the National Park Service for a second century of public service,” said Todd Brindle, Superintendent of Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.
This project was made possible by a grant from the National Park Foundation through the generous support of L.L. Bean, the Anschutz Family Foundation, and The Ahmanson Foundation.
