National Park Service
Grand Canyon National Park

Click here to read National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis’s policy letter to regional directors outlining their goals of banning the sale of single use plastic water bottles and improving drinking fountains and reusable water bottle refilling stations in ALL national parks throughout the country!

The Grand Canyon National Park continues upgrading drinking fountains and adding canteen refilling stations as a way to move the park from selling plastic water bottles to banning them. You can read about the ban and its controversy here.

Thank you Jonathan Jarvis for demonstrating your commitment to your words:  ‎”National parks are a gift from past generations to this and succeeding generations…My core responsibilities are to protect these landscapes, serve park visitors, and support community programs.”
