[prMac.com] Grand Canyon, Arizona - ParksConnect is proud to announce Grand Canyon National Park Field Guide 1.1 for iOS. Designed for explorers and visitors alike, the Grand Canyon National Park Field Guide offers a one-of-a-kind view into the rare and common plants, animals, history and geology of one of the most visited US National Parks. From pink rattlesnakes, nearly extinct California Condors, prehistoric snails, to invasive European grasses, and Rocky Mountain Elk, each featured species has its own unique and important story.
"While there are many guide books on the Grand Canyon, nothing comes close to offering accessible, affordable, and comprehensive information like a mobile field guide," said experienced Park Ranger and ParksConnect(TM) Founder, Andrew Englehorn. "There is so much more to the canyon than meets the eye. We want to educate visitors about the species living in the park in a way that makes it fun, easy and memorable. By bridging the gap of technology and nature, we aim to preserve and sustain our incredible National Parks System, and connect with young and old alike."
Created by ParksConnect, The Grand Canyon Field Guide features images, audio, and species content covering a wide range of ecology, facts, native history, and geology. ParksConnect was a proud recipient of Utah's Business and Technology Award in April 2013 for best business innovation, and is available for immediate download.
