Greater Grand Canyon and Arizona Strip

The Grand Canyon is one of our most iconic national treasures and its splendor is world renowned. Its sandstone walls attract millions every year.

But there is more to this special area than just the places inside the boundaries of the national park. Outside these borders, unprotected lands threaten this iconic landscape.

Why the Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon and Arizona Strip covers the area around Grand Canyon National Park, as well as parts of Arizona and Utah. These areas are critical to protecting the Grand Canyon watershed and the Colorado River.
