Nature Notes

On August 1, 1929, the first issue of Nature Notes was published. Written and produced by the Education Departments at Zion and Bryce Canyon, its purpose was to provide information to "those interested in the educational opportunities, the natural history, the scientific features or the scenic beauties of this region." Eighty years later, Nature Notes continues this tradition by covering subjects pertinent to Zion National Park and its employees.

Please check back on this webpage as more Nature Notes will be added soon.
