Do not disturb: Peregrine falcons are nesting in Zion National Park

Everyone enjoys stays in Zion National Park, including peregrine falcons! Climbing routes on cliffs used by nesting peregrine falcons in Zion National Park will be temporarily closed beginning March 1, 2022. The falcons are especially sensitive to being disturbed while they nest. If disturbed, a nesting pair may abandon their nest site and not nest again until the following year. The closure date is based on National Park Service (NPS) monitoring of peregrines’ arrival to nesting sites on cliffs in the park from 2001 to 2021.
