Concrete to Canyons is an award-winning place based environmental education program. Started in 2013, the program brings fifth grade students from Las Vegas and Mesquite, NV to Zion National Park, where they spend three days and two nights learning and camping.
The Concrete to Canyons program at Zion is run in partnership with Lake Mead National Recreation Area. The learning doesn’t stop when the students return home from their trip to Zion. Each class is invited on follow-up field trips to Lake Mead where they will learn about the park and participate in a service project. Rangers from both parks are integral in the operation of the Concrete to Canyons program.
Support for the Concrete to Canyons programs comes from the Zion National Park Forever Project and the National Park Foundation.
