Canyon Day history

Early Canyon Days involved raking leaves, burning debris, and attempting to make the canyon into a park. More recently, the focus of Canyon Day has been on protecting and restoring the natural vegetation to make the canyon a better habitat for urban wildlife. You can read more about how the event has changed over the years on our Canyon Day history page.
