Planning to develop an interactive website and DVD, audio tours, and other materials interpreting the cultural history of the Grand Canyon landscape.

This project will produce a wide variety of educational materials interpreting the cultural landscape history of the Grand Canyon and the park's significance in American history. Our public program products will include an interactive web-site and DVD, audio-tours of historic sites at the Grand Canyon, digital video materials on Native American perspectives, field seminars for the general public, “traveling trunks” for educators, books and pamphlets, historic site signage, and multi-lingual interpretive materials. These products will be aimed specifically at park tourists, elementary and secondary school students and teachers, college students and faculty, historical associations, local tribes, civic groups, and the general public.
