NPS Urban Agenda
One of the country’s most famous landscapes, the immense beauty of the Grand Canyon draws nearly five million visitors each year. These visitors take in the sight from the Canyon’s rim or descend to appreciate the park’s spectacular recreational and geologic resources.
The program is a partnership between the NPS Washington Office Archeology Program, the University of Arizona School of Anthropology, and the nonprofit Environmental Education Exchange. Through participation in an archeological dig and artifact analysis along with visits to National Parks, local museums, and university archeology laboratories students engage in the study of Southwest archeology from the precontact to the historical periods with emphasis on the Hispanic heritage of the Southwest.
