The first two days of the week were pretty exciting, as the entire Grand Canyon Vegetation office drove out to Desert View in order to have our yearly conference. We listened to multiple speakers give updates on canyon projects, safety procedures, and just general plant information. Our SCA team gave an epic skit presentation on Driving Safety, which included a home-made, giant cardboard-box car with paper-plate wheels. On the second day we spent the afternoon on a volunteer project, planting and mulching out at Desert View. The conference was a fun and educational break from our daily routine.
On Wednesday the Grand Canyon Park headquarters held an open house, allowing visitors and park employees alike to come and explore the current projects going on in the canyon. We only stayed for a short time, as there was more watering to get done! We finished up the week doing just that, as well as a little weed pulling.
