Thanks to the help of wildlife biologist Makenzie Henk, the Conservancy's search for the elusive Catalina Island shrew is speeding into the future. Using artificial intelligence software, Makenzie is able to sort through hundreds of thousands of photos and prioritize those with small mammals (shrews and mice). This year the wildlife crew has already reviewed over 90,000 photos!

The first Monday in September is set aside to honor American workers and champion the ideals set forth by legions of workers’ rights advocates and the sacrifices they made to get us where we are today. The labor movement gave us the 40-hour work week, weekends, minimum wage, and so much more. Our journey continues today toward an equitable society for all. So be sure to thank those workers’ rights advocates of yesterday and consider what you can do to advance workers’ rights moving forward.
Labor Day also marks a shift in the schedule here at Bryce Canyon - we will no longer offer evening programs or astronomy events this season. We will continue to offer daily geology talks at 11am at Sunset Point. Hope to see you there!

We all love the idea of being at one with nature, and camping can be the perfect opportunity for this. Drive to a remote location, set up your tent, and settle down to watch the sunset with your loved one, sipping on a cold drink and tucking into some smores. But oftentimes, the reality can look ver...

Heads Up: Solo hiker injured by bear on Beaver Ponds Trail

On the morning of Friday, May 28, 2021, a male, age 39, sustained injuries from a bear while hiking on the Beaver Ponds Trail at Mammoth Hot Springs.

The incident occurred approximately 1.5 miles from the trailhead that originates from the Old Gardiner Road.

The male was hiking alone when he encountered what he believed to be two grizzly bears. One bear made contact with the hiker and he sustained significant injuries to his lower extremities but was able to hike out on his own.

He was transported to Livingston Hospital by park ambulance.

The Beaver Ponds Trail is closed until further notice. Bear management staff are sweeping the trail to ensure no other hikers are on the trail.

There are no further details to share at this time.

Be bear aware:
- Stay 100 yards away from bears at all times.
- Carry bear spray and know how to use it.
- Be alert. Watch for fresh tracks, s**t, and feeding sites.
- Make noise.
- Hike in groups of three or more people.
- Don't hike at dawn, dusk, or at night, when grizzlies are most active.
- Don’t run from a bear.

This is the first incident of a bear injuring a person in Yellowstone in 2021. The last incident was in June 2020, when a grizzly bear knocked a woman to the ground and scratched her thigh.


Where will you find your next adventure? Peninsula State Park, perhaps?!

Over the last year, Peninsula State Park has gone through a major transformation by upgrading facilities and infrastructure across the park including:
- New shower restroom facility in the South Nicolet campground
- Restroom upgrades at South Nicolet and Weborg Point campgrounds
- 11 new vault toilet restrooms
- Construction of a new sanitary station (dump/fill station)
- New restroom facility at Northern Sky Theater
- Nature Center addition (will remain closed until facilities reopen to the public)
- Resurfacing of 400 campsites
- Campsite upgrades including new grills and fire rings
- 23 campsites upgraded to electrical service
- New drinking fountains added throughout the campgrounds

In addition to the new facilities, some favorite amenities are set to open for the season with protocols in place to ensure the safety of visitors.
- Peninsula State Park Golf Course and clubhouse will open to golfers May 1
- Eagle Bluff Lighthouse will open for tours beginning May 15
- The Nicolet Beach Camp Store will open Memorial Day weekend, May 28
- Northern Sky Theater opens for the season June 14

Work at Peninsula doesn’t stop there. In the next 1-2 years we’ll be making considerable upgrades to various trails, nature center and property roads.

Due to unforeseen construction delays, the Eagle Tower at Peninsula State Park is not open to the public. The DNR estimates the tower will reopen in the coming weeks.
