GRAND CANYON, Ariz. — Grand Canyon National Park, in concert with the Alternative Break Citizenship School, will host award-winning western singer and songwriter Dave Stamey Tuesday, 7 p.m. at Shrine of the Ages in Grand Canyon Village. This concert is free and open to the public.
Stamey, a former cowboy, mule packer, and dude wrangler, now delights audiences as one of the most popular western entertainers working today. Grand Canyon National Park will host Stamey for a public concert and as a way to say thank you to the alternative break participants for their week of hard work and active citizenship at Grand Canyon.
From Sunday through Thursday, participants in the alternative breaks will be working alongside Grand Canyon National Park’s wildland fire crew. This training is designed for student leaders from various universities who will facilitate hundreds of alternative breaks across the country.
Alternative breaks provide students with an opportunity to work with communities and agencies in a week-long service and immersion program.
Some of the projects alternative break participants have worked on at Grand Canyon National Park include removing invasive plants, preparing archaeological sites for future prescribed wildland fires and maintaining hiking trails.
During spring of 2015, 82 students from eight colleges and universities spent time supporting the wildland fire crew at Grand Canyon.
Stamey will reward the hard work of the alternative break participants with this free concert and Grand Canyon National Park invites the public to join in the fun.
