This year, as a national attraction, Zion National Park is 100 years old.   Zion was established as Mukuntuweap National Monument by President William Taft on July 31, 1909.    While various activities are occuring throughout this centennial year, on July 31 of this year there are several small activities slated to occur within the park.  

An additional recent cause for celebration is the announcement of a new commemorative stamp for Zion National Park.  This is just the second time that a stamp has been created for Zion National Park.
