Buck-I-Serve Grand Canyon Backpacking


Time: Monday, May 13, 2019 12:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Location: Grand Canyon, AZ

Students will be serving the Palatki Heritage Site in the Coconino National Forest, a site visited by thousands each year. Restoration work and manual labor will ensure access for many years to come. Interpretive guides will share the story of Native Americans who used these cliff dwellings hundreds of years ago and the importance of keeping these heritage sites for future generations. Following this work, students will continue north and begin a challenging, bucket-list backpack into the awe-inspiring Grand Canyon. Over 2.5 days, the group will be backpacking 15-20 miles, camping below the rim of the Grand Canyon for two nights. Finally, the trip concludes with 2.5 days of whitewater rafting at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, complete with travertine waterfalls and river side camping. Impromptu service projects in the Canyon will arise based on group ability and direction from Park Rangers.
