Peregrine Falcons
Climbing routes on cliffs used by nesting peregrine falcons in Zion National Park will close on March 1 each year. Park wildlife biologists will monitor the nesting activity of peregrine falcons throughout the breeding season. Cliffs that have been closed but are not being used for nest sites this year, will be reopened when nest locations have been determined, typically by late April or early May. Those cliffs being used for nest sites this year will be monitored until the chicks fledge, usually in late July, and then will be reopened to climbing. Click the link above to download the most recent edition of the Seasonal Raptor Guide. This guide is used in conjunction with the status updates above to provide climbers with an increased understanding of what cliffs are closed to climbing during the peregrine falcon nesting season.
