Zion Natural History Association
The Zion Natural History Association (ZNHA) is a non-profit organization that aims to promote the history and importance of Zion National Park, Cedar Breaks National Monument, and Pipe Springs National Monument through education, research, and publishing. It has many volunteers committed to protecting these valuable places.
A major source of funds for the organization is sells from its bookstore. The store has numerous books, videos/DVDs, and maps that provide detailed information about Zion National Park that people use to better plan their vacation so that they can understand the history and nature of the areas that they visit.
Zion Canyon Field Institute is the Association’s outreach branch that provides many workshops, presentations, guided hikes, and other activities to the public throughout the year. The events are conducted by experts who lead participants in activities like spotting bighorn sheep with a wildlife biologist or map a previously undiscovered archaeological site. The Institute wants to engage people in tactile activities that better educate and excite them about this grand area.
