Our Projects

The projects were selected in collaboration with our park partners – through an application process we developed to more effectively address the park’s most critical resource issues, and to fully leverage public and private support.

While federal tax dollars and visitor entrance fees fund the park’s basic maintenance and day to day operations, the projects expressed in the following pages help us preserve the integrity of the Zion experience now, and for generations to come.
