Protecting the Grand Canyon Watershed, a proposal for national monument designation...
A UNIQUE LANDSCAPE
Ranging from the arid Sonoran and Great Basin
Deserts to lush, boreal Rocky Mountain forests, the
proposed Grand Canyon Watershed National
Monument is an ecological wonder. The proposed
monument embraces one of the most spectacular
American landscapes—the Grand Canyon—and
encompasses a wild, rugged array of towering cliffs,
deeply incised tributary canyons, grasslands, and
numerous springs that flow into the Colorado River
in Grand Canyon. At least
twenty-two sensitive species call the landscape
home, including the endangered California condor and the rare northern goshawk.
