Looking to take a trip to Grand Canyon National Park this month? 

Go on March 24, and you can learn about the state’s archaeology and heritage through a number of fun, family-friendly activities.

The park has 4,300 known archeological sites, but experts expect there are as many as 60,000. Some of the artifacts date back 12,000 years.

Try your hand at making clay pinch pots and split-twig figurines, creating rock art, coloring Hopi pot designs, sifting for artifacts, and planting corn, beans and squash seeds. Eat the traditional foods of the park’s native peoples.

All activities are between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and are free. For more information on Archeology Day and on special park programs happening throughout Archeology and Heritage Awareness Month, please visit the park’s web site at, or call Supervisory Park Ranger Libby Schaaf at (928) 638-7641.
