The State of Arizona has once again stepped up to provide funding that has allowed Grand Canyon to continue operations. They are funding trash, snow removal and the cleaning of bathrooms. All of the concessionaires continue to opperate as normal. The Grand Canyon Conservancy has stepped up their services and it has allowed for services to continue at Desert View Watchtower, Yavapai Geology Museum, Verkamps Visitor Center, Lookout Studio and Kolb Studio.
NPS is working on utilizing fee resources based on the revised contigency plan to take the burden off the state and are waiting final approvals.
Currently there are no fees being collected at the gates and there is also no staff there to answer question. The main visitor center is also closed. The Chamber's Visitor Center located in Tusayan 1.5 miles from the South Rim entrance station is open daily from 9 am - 4 pm.
The community is really pulling together and organizing many resources to support the furloughed workers. Click here for the latest community news.
