    (ST. GEORGE, Utah) - Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument has resumed normal operations following a 16-day partial shutdown due to a lapse of federal appropriations. All facilities have fully reopened and staff has returned to work.

    “We are happy to be back to work and once again welcome everybody to enjoy the wide variety of outdoor activities the monument offers,” said Superintendent Rosie Pepito. “As a proud member of this community, we realize the economic impact of closing the monument for 16 days has been difficult on our gateway communities, local businesses, neighbors and park partners and we will work to reschedule events to lessen the impacts.”

    Please visit Parashant staff at the second annual Gold Butte Days Festival in Mesquite, NV on Friday October 18 from noon until 5 p.m. and Saturday October 19 from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. to learn more about the monument.
