Grand Canyon dissolves river-trips unit due to worker harassment

FLAGSTAFF The unit of Grand Canyon National Park that ran river trips has been dismantled following a report by a federal watchdog that found a longstanding pattern of sexual harassment there.

Grand Canyon Superintendent Dave Uberuaga notified staff earlier this month of the decision to dismantle the river district, National Park Service spokesman James Doyle said. The move was part of a series of reforms the agency outlined in response to the report.

None of the six employees lost their jobs, agency spokeswoman Vanessa Lacayo said.

The January report by the Interior Department's Office of Inspector General found that male employees who have worked in the river district preyed on female colleagues, demanded sex and retaliated against women who refused.

1. None of them lost their jobs?

Hope they've been reassigned to latrine maintenance, a much more appropriate use of their "talents."

3. A long article in HuffPo about the harassment problem in National Forests and National Parks:
