Graffiti Removal and Intervention Team
There will be no spring 2014 True GRIT trips.
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.
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.
Beginning 2011, you must have a doctor's note stating you are physically able to do this work. Here is the note. We do not require a physical examination, just this note signed by a medical professional. It must be turned in with your application, or you will not be considered for a trip.
There will be no Spring 2014 True GRIT trips.
In the interest of fairness to all applicants, here is how the application proccess will happen. No applications will be accepted before 7:00 am MST on February 1, 2013.
