Hualapai Nation


Glen Canyon Dam Adaptive Management Program

As a co-manager of 108 miles of Grand Canyon, the Hualapai Tribe has been an integral stakeholder in the Glen Canyon Dam Adaptive Management Program (Program) since its inception. The Program was initiated with the Record of Decision for the Glen Canyon Dam Environmental Impact Statement from the Secretary of the Interior Bruce Babbitt in 1995. The goal of the Program is to fulfill the mandate of the Grand Canyon Protection Act to conserve, maintain and enhance the natural and cultural resources of Grand Canyon. The Program is directed by a 27 member Adaptive Management Work Group (AMWG) with input from a Technical Work Group (TWG). Dr. Kerry Christensen of the Hualapai Department of Natural Resources (HDNR) is the TWG representative. Implementation of the program is accomplished by the Grand Canyon Monitoring and Research Center (GCMRC) located in Flagstaff, Arizona. The GCMRC is an entity of the U.S. Geological Survey.
