Standard and daylight saving - be aware of time changes as you travel throughout this region. Nevada is always one hour earlier than Utah. Utah and Nevada observe daylight saving time during the summer. Arizona stays on standard time the year round. Utah and Arizona are on the same time from late October to early April.

Ranger / Naturalist programs include guided walks, evening programs and talks given from late March to November. Activity schedules are posted at the visitor center and throughout the park.
As in other National Parks, Zion has a Junior Ranger program from Memorial Day to Labor Day. This is for children 6 to 12 years of age, and is held in the Zion Nature Center. The Junior Ranger Program really helps the youth get the most out of their visit to a National Park and to become involved as an official Junior Ranger and earn their patch.
