Glen Canyon's rock formations delight and water excites. There are so many ways to get out and explore.
Bullfrog, Esclante, and Carl Hayden Visitor Centers all have interesting exhibits that can teach you about different aspects of Glen Canyon. Bullfrog has information on rocks, ancient peoples, and even a life sized slot canyon! Escalante's exhibits include microscopes and tons of information about the dinosaurs that once roamed Utah. Carl Hayden is located right next to the Glen Canyon Dam. Learn all about water with interactive exhibits and videos. Plus there's a Junior Ranger Corner with space for play and for completing activity books.
More Junior Ranger Books
Explore caves, study the stars, or go fishing! There are over a dozen different Junior Ranger booklets you can complete at home or on a visit to Glen Canyon. Plus, many other national parks have their own booklets and badges. How many can you earn?
