Celebrate 100 years of Park History with “Bryce Canyon Memories”

BRYCE, UT – Over the years many people have had the privilege of calling Bryce Canyon their home. Now, thanks to a cooperative effort between Southern Utah University, Bryce Canyon National Park, and the Bryce Canyon Natural History Association, you too can explore the first 100 years of park history through the stories of those who lived it.


“Bryce Canyon Memories” is the culmination of SUU filmmaker Dr. Jon Smith’s six-year endeavor to document the experiences of over thirty individuals—eleven of whom have since passed away—who in visiting, living, and working in Bryce Canyon became an inseparable part of its history.  From the efforts of the Civilian Conservation Corps to nights spent in quiet happiness on the canyon rim, this special film and the memories within serve as a reminder that this land changes every life it touches.


Give a gift that celebrates the uniqueness of this land and the people who have made it all the more special. DVDs of “Bryce Canyon Memories” are available just in time for the holidays at the Bryce Canyon National Park Visitor Center, open daily from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. They can also be purchased by visiting the Bryce Canyon Natural History Association website at www.brycecanyon.org, or by calling their toll-free line at (888) 362-2642.
