Map of Glen Canyon showing logos of companies adopting certain canyons

The Adopt-a-Canyon program started in 2016 as a community and partner collaboration to improve resource conditions at Glen Canyon National Recreation Area during the National Park Service Centennial. Local tour and service providers, conservation and education groups, and private individuals signed up to "adopt" a canyon on Lake Powell. As canyon stewards, these companies remove trash from "their" canyons.

Our heroes so far:

  • Aspiro – Fence Canyon and Harris Wash
  • Colorado River Discovery – Colorado River below Dam
  • Far Out Expedition – Muley Point and Cedar Point
  • Glen Canyon Institute – 50-mile Canyon
  • Hidden Canyon Kayak – Labyrinth Canyon
  • Houseboat Management Services – West Canyon
  • Lake Powell Paddleboards – Antelope Canyon
  • Lake Powell Refrigeration, Heating and A/C – Gunsight Canyon, Cookie Jar, Kane, and Padre
  • Lake Powell Resorts and Marinas/Southlake Boat Rentals – canyons in Wahweap Bay, including Ice Cream, Wiregrass, and Lone Rock
  • McNabb Fishing Guide Service – Face Canyon
  • National Outdoor Leadership School – Escalante and its tributaries
  • Seeking Treasure Adventures – Warm Creek Road to Alstrom Point
  • The Wildand Trekking Co – Coyote Gulch
  • Ticaboo Resort – Bullfrog Bay and Hobie Cat Beach
