45,000 People Are Protesting a Grand Canyon Resort With Online Petitions


For nearly a century the Grand Canyon has been one of the world’s most famous natural tourist attractions—over five million people visit the park each year.

But a new proposal for a resort development on the eastern rim of the canyon (which affects land that is not formally part of the national park) has started a rift in the Navajo Indian nation that calls the area home, and several advocacy groups are using the internet to rally for their cause.

The proposed development, called the Grand Canyon Escalade, would consist of a tramway from the east rim to the bottom of the canyon, where there would be a riverwalk, amphitheater and food court, along with hotels, shops and Navajo crafts.
