Glen Canyon Conservancy seeks to preserve Powell Country for future generations of explorers
Glen Canyon Conservancy partners with public lands in northern Arizona and southern Utah to create learning opportunities, enhance visitor experience, and inspire stewardship.
Founded in 1986 as Glen Canyon Natural History Association, GCC offers educational programming, products, and services to help visitors find a lasting connection with their public lands.
Our organization utilizes member support and retail proceeds at 10 locations throughout the region to generate funds that support educational, safety, outreach, and research programs.
GCC supports public lands including Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Lake Powell, Rainbow Bridge National Monument, Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, Dixie National Forest, Canyons of the Ancients National Monument, and Vermilion Cliffs National Monument.
GCC cultivates stewardship through a growing network of philanthropic partners. Our mission and your support ensure that Powell country remains wild, beautiful, and inspiring for generations to come.
