Program areas at The Grand Canyon Trust

Land special designations through the work of our cultural landscapes program, the trust strives to effect change in concert with tribal communities and nations. We authentically support tribal leadership and always support tribal sovereignty. Partnerships with tribal communities and nations serve as the cornerstone of the trust's conservation work on the Colorado plateau. This work exists alongside and is complementary to the work of defending and restoring our national monuments. The designation of the 1.35 million-acre bears ears national monument in december of 2016 was an incredible step forward. Throughout the campaign, if the trust were a single person, we have been a convener, a coalition builder, an organizer, a researcher, a policy analyst, a scientist, a cartographer, a filmmaker, a photographer, a writer, a litigator, and an advocate. Unfortunately, in december 2017, the u.s. president reduced the size of the monument by 85% and dramatically narrowed the scope of ...

Energy gct's energy program aims to address three major issues: achieving carbon neutrality on the Colorado plateau, mitigating the environmental impacts of methane emissions on navajo lands, and preventing toxic and radioactive uranium contamination around the grand canyon and on the Colorado plateau. In 2018, the trust developed a new long-term goal, aiming to achieve carbon neutrality on the Colorado plateau by 2035. We are conducting a replicable carbon budgeting process to measure emissions and offsets across the plateau. We will then develop a proposed action plan for achieving emissions reductions that will form the technical base for necessary and extensive coalition-building work. During the process of conducting the carbon assessment for the plateau, we will engage key potential partners. Partners working in an extensive and well-coordinated coalition will be vital if ambitious carbon neutrality gains are to be made over the coming decade and beyond. We continue to conduct ...

Native america gct's native america program focuses on giving native people a voice and role in the protection of the Colorado plateau. We do this by facilitating dialogue among the eleven native american tribes that have resided across this landscape for thousands of years, and who now control the future of some 30,000 square miles of this region. The heart of this work is the inter-tribal gatherings process, which brings together Colorado plateau tribes to collaborate on addressing environmental challenges and cultural preservation. Gct has facilitated sixteen gatherings over the past eight years. In recent years, participants have identified climate change as one of the biggest threats to the native american way of life, and the gatherings have initiated collaborative responses to this challenge. The trust's native america program has been organizing the Colorado plateau intertribal conversation (cpic) initiative in an effort to reestablish conversations between tribal nations across the ...
