dbo:abstract
  • Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument ist ein Naturschutzgebiet vom Typ eines National Monuments im Nordwesten des US-Bundesstaats Arizona. Es liegt im Mohave County zwischen dem Nordrand des Grand Canyon und dem Virgin River, nahe der Staatsgrenze zu Utah, im Süden überschneidet es sich mit der Lake Mead National Recreation Area und grenzt an den Grand-Canyon-Nationalpark. Das über 4000 km² große Schutzgebiet wurde im Januar 2000 durch Präsident Bill Clinton errichtet und steht unter der gemeinsamen Verwaltung des National Park Service und des Bureau of Land Management, beides Bundesbehörden unter dem Dach des US-Innenministeriums. Der Name stammt aus der Sprache der Paiute-Indianer und ist von Pawteh 'ee oasoasant abgeleitet, was „gegerbtes Hirschleder“ bedeutet und darauf hindeutet, dass das Land in früherer Zeit fruchtbarer war und große Herden auf dem Plateau lebten.

  • Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument (sometimes referred to as Parashant National Monument) is located on the northern edge of the Grand Canyon in northwest Arizona. The monument was established by Presidential Proclamation 7265 on January 11, 2000. The national monument is a very remote and undeveloped place jointly managed by the National Park Service (NPS) and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). There are no paved roads into the monument and no visitor services. The 1,048,325-acre (424,242 ha) monument is larger than the state of Rhode Island. The BLM portion of the monument consists of 808,747 acres (327,288 ha). The NPS portion contains 208,453 acres (84,358 ha) of lands that were previously part of Lake Mead National Recreation Area. There are also about 23,205 acres (9,391 ha) of Arizona State Land Department lands and 7,920 acres (3,210 ha) of private lands within the monument boundaries. Grand Canyon-Parashant is not considered a separate unit of the NPS because its NPS area is counted in Lake Mead National Recreation Area. Elevation ranges from 1,230 feet (370 m) above sea level near Grand Wash Bay at Lake Mead, to 8,029 feet (2,447 m) at Mount Trumbull. The Interagency Information Center is located in the BLM Office in St. George, Utah. The name Parashant is derived from Paiute word Pawteh 'ee oasoasant, meaning "tanned elk hide," or "softening of the elk hide." (en)
