Canyon Views Spring/Summer 2022

Our changing climate and its impact on water threatens the future of Grand Canyon as it exists today. That’s why we’ve dedicated this issue of Canyon Views to water.

Humpback Chub Translocation to Shinumo Creek

From the CEO

Dear Friends,

When I look over the rim at the vast landscape of Grand Canyon and see all the beautiful rock, it’s hard to imagine the importance of water. However, the Colorado River has been carving the canyon for over five million years. Along with the seeps and streams, it’s the lifeblood of the canyon.

But our changing climate and its impact on water threatens the future of Grand Canyon as it exists today. That’s why we’ve dedicated this issue of Canyon Views to water.

Grand Canyon Conservancy is working closely with the National Park Service to mitigate the consequences of a changing environment. When it comes to water, your generous support is funding scientific research to monitor the quality and quantity of water in the Colorado River and its tributaries, preserving areas of cultural significance, and resto ring native fish and habitats.

This work goes straight to our mission of inspiring generations of park champions to cherish and support the natural and cultural wonder of Grand Canyon. Without this work, the park may look like a very different place in the future.

Thank you for your support!

I hope you enjoy this issue of Canyon Views.

Theresa McMullan
Chief Executive Officer
