Just in time for Founder’s Day, on August 17 the Glen Canyon Conservancy (GCC) reopened the Navajo Bridge Interpretive Center in Marble Canyon and its flagship store in Page, Arizona (12 N. Lake Powell Blvd.). Both locations are open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and offer educational items, trip planning and safety supplies, and souvenirs unique to Glen Canyon. GCC is a nonprofit cooperating association and partners with public lands to create learning opportunities, enhance visitor experience, and inspire stewardship. GCC advises that face coverings are required for all staff and visitors and thanks you for practicing social distancing.

Glen Canyon National Recreation Area reminds everyone that a safe and enjoyable park visit starts at home. Plan your visit by checking a park’s website and social media platforms for updates about current conditions and important safety guidelines. We encourage visitors to practice Leave No Trace principlesRecreate Responsibly and pack essential items like water, face coverings and hand sanitizer.
