Grand Canyon Monitoring Activity


GCPBA has just received this information from Linda Jalbert, Grand Canyon CRMP Program Coordinator, about upcoming monitoring activity in the Grand Canyon


As part of the CRMP implementation, the NPS will conduct attraction site monitoring at the Deer Creek area during the week of June 3-9. The attraction site monitoring program had been conducted in the past at the more popular river corridor attraction areas -- and will continue under the new CRMP monitoring program. Methods involve making observations of river
trip use patterns and visitor activities. The information documented includes arrival and departure times (length of stay); trip characteristics (type, number of boats, group size), and activities at site (falls, patio, hike to springs). The purpose of the monitoring is to assess the changes of the 2006 CRMP use levels and patterns overall and attraction site encounters and visitation patterns specifically.

Kirstin Heins, a NPS planner will be at Deer Creek for the week. She is new to the CRMP implementation team, but has worked in the backcountry for several years. Kirstin looks forward to her time in the canyon and the opportunity to meet boaters.

Background on the CRMP monitoring plan can be found at
Grand Canyon National Park - Colorado River Management Plan Grand Canyon National Park (U.S. National Park Service). The CRMP website was recently updated to include the June launch/exchange calendars and a brief report on the NPS Resources Monitoring Trip.

Thanks for your interest and continued support. Please contact me if you have any questions.
