GRAND CANYON, Ariz. — Grand Canyon National Park would like to thank members of the Grand Canyon Hikers & Backpackers Association who recently volunteered to spend three and a half days at Phantom Ranch doing service work.

During their time in the Canyon, volunteers cleared irrigation ditch es used to keep the shade trees happy in Bright Angel Campground, applied linseed oil to the shingled roofs of

three information kiosk and the irrigation water pump house, pruned trees at the program amphitheaters

and brush from the trails and tightened bolts on amphitheater benches.
