Zion National Park, Washington County, Utah (May 2, 2022) — The Zion National Park Forever Project, the official nonprofit partner of Zion National Park, Cedar Breaks National Monument, and Pipe Spring National Monument, is announcing the release of the 2022 Field Guide. Contained within the pages of this year’s guide are 24 of the National Park Service highest priority projects.
The Zion National Park Forever Project Announces Release of Annual Field Guide For 2022 Park Season
The Zion Forever Field Guide contains the highest priority park projects that require funding across Zion National Park, Cedar Breaks National Monument, Pipe Spring National Monument, and beyond park borders throughout the Zion Regional Landscape.
“Over the past decade, Zion National Park has faced numerous challenges ranging from landslides, aging and failing infrastructure, to assuring an authentic quality visitor experience for millions annually. Meeting these demands and the increasing pressures stresses available resources. The National Park Service is honored to have a nearly century-long partner– the Zion Forever Project– to carry the park stewardship banner alongside us. I encourage you to read this year’s guide and discover how you can join in our efforts.” – Jeff Bradybaugh, Superintendent, Zion National Park
The projects span across the three parks and throughout the regional landscape, touching each aspect of the National Park experience. Anchored within three distinct strategy areas, projects focus on Improving Today, Informing Tomorrow, and Protecting Forever. Often called a book of solutions, these initiatives have been identified working with federal land management agencies as top priority projects that currently lack funding for completion. Projects include new and repaired trails, education programs, conservation, wildlife research, and long-term planning for the eastern plateau beyond Zion’s gates in Kane County, Utah.
“These projects carry great need, but they also carry great hope and optimism for the future. Our focus on building a coalition of willing partners is unwavering, and this Field Guide articulates our needs and helps further the discussion of creating seamless and sustainable solutions for our cherished public lands.” – Mark Preiss, Vice President, Zion Forever Project
In total, the Forever Project has more than $3.7 Million allocated towards active projects currently in process, and the Field Guide is seeking over $2.8 Million in additional funding as we head towards the 2023 season.
