What is Sustainability?
"...to promote and regulate the use of the...national parks...which purpose is to conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and the wild life therein and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations"
Our Commitment to Sustainability
Zion National Park is committed to making its operations sustainable in order to conserve the natural wonders within its borders and the natural resources that extend beyond its borders and benefit us all. One way Zion is demonstrating leadership is by tracking and analyzing its environmental impacts. Zion is working to improve the way it uses energy, the types of products and materials it purchases, and the kinds of materials it recycles.
Zion is dedicated to being an environmental leader within the National Park Service and welcomes input from visitors, neighbors, businesses or anyone who cares about the park. Please contact Zion_Sustainability@nps.gov with your questions comments or concerns.
