President William Jefferson Clinton signed Presidential Proclamation 7265 creating Parashant National Monument on January 11, 2000. The proclamation was issued under the Antiquities Act of 1906 (34 Stat. 225, 16 U.S. Code 431) and governs how the provisions of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 and the Organic Act of 1916 are to be applied within the monument.

Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument is managed by both the National Park Service (NPS) and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Both consistently adhere to United States Code regulations. However, some bureau-specific regulations differ. Some activities are permitted on BLM land in the Parashant that are not permitted on the NPS portion. (Note: The NPS is a bureau of the Department of the Interior just like the BLM).

We recognize that there are many regulations to review so to help you save time, please Contact Us if you have a specific question about whether an activity you want to do is permissible.

BLM lands are governed by Title 43 of the Code of Federal Regulations, which applies to all BLM lands. NPS lands are governed by Title 36 of the Code of Federal Regulations that apply to all NPS lands. In addition, NPS superintendents can issue specific regulations for their park or monument. This list of regulations is called a Superintendent's Compendium. It is a compilation of designations, closures, permit requirements, and regulations made by the Superintendent, in addition to what is contained in Title 36 of the Code of Federal Regulations (Parks, Forest, and Public Property, Chapter 1, National Park Service, Department of the Interior), and other applicable statutes and regulations.

Parashant-specific Superintendent's Compendium (includes Seasonal Vehicle Restrictions).
