America’s Southwest is full of breathtaking canyons, but none as famous or as widely visited as the Grand Canyon. This world-famous landmark offers wondrous views, spectacular hiking, exhilarating whitewater rafting and countless adventures. One look across the enormous chasm confirms just why this inspirational place is one of the seven natural wonders of the world and a must-see destination for so many travelers. The park also protects a wealth of biological diversity, including numerous endemic and threatened species and several rare ecosystems.

Grand Victory

In 2016, thousands of NPCA supporters helped protect the Grand Canyon from one of the worst development threats in its history, a mega-mall near the park's South Rim that would have included 2,100 housing units and 3 million square feet of commercial space. Advocates and allies helped convince the U.S. Forest Service to deny a permit for the misguided project.
