protecting and restoring the intricate web of life along the Colorado River through Glen and Grand Canyons

Since 1996, Grand Canyon Wildlands Council has provided a passionate and science-driven voice for the River. We hold a conservation stakeholder seat in the Adaptive Management Work Group, which recommends actions to the Secretary of Interior for the operation of Glen Canyon Dam. We also publish the Colorado River in Grand Canyon, River Map and Guide with a chapter on the history and effects of Glen Canyon Dam.
