(KSL) Zion National Park closes 13 climbing routes to protect nesting falcons

From the article…

“Zion National Park officials have closed 13 different climbing routes in the park to protect nesting peregrine falcons throughout the area.

The routes were closed Wednesday and will remain closed while park wildlife biologists determine the birds’ nesting locations. Cliffs that don’t shelter nest sites this year will reopen some time by late April or early May. Cliffs with nests will remain closed until the falcon chicks fledge, which usually happens in late July.”
