Canyons of the Southwest

March 28 – April 4, 2020

Explore inspiring western landscapes on this tour led by naturalist Paul Regnier of Door County Nature and Travel and professional geologist Dr. Roger Kuhns. These remarkable canyons tell a fascinating story of the geologic forces that shaped our Earth. We’ll explore beautiful canyon vistas and learn about the geologic history of Zion, Bryce, and Grand Canyon National Parks as well as Monument Valley Tribal Park. Join fellow Natural Resources Foundation members as we explore the rich natural and cultural history of the American Southwest!

Trip Highlights

  • Explore Zion National Park. Utah’s first national park exhibits some of the most remarkable scenery on earth.
  • View spectacular sunsets. Monument Valley Navajo Park hosts spectacular sandstone cathedrals, fiery red spindles, grandiose buttes, and awe-inspiring sunsets.
  • Enjoy vistas at Bryce Canyon. Observe spindly, pointed rock spires, sheer walls and unusual hoodoo formations.
  • Visit the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Stretching over hundreds of miles and to a depth of one mile, the Grand Canyon reveals an unrivaled historical record of earth.
  • Travel with a small group. This tour is limited to just 18 travelers. We think the small-group atmosphere allows you to get closer to your guide, each other, and, most importantly, nature.
