Canyon Gallery - Partners in Palo Duro Canyon

Canyon Gallery - Partners in Palo Duro Canyon Partner's helps support Palo Duro Canyon State Park in Canyon, Texas. We are a non-profit foundation and all of our proceeds made in the gift shop, goes back to the park. Partner's has helped purchase the firefighting equipment, rescue equipment and many other needed items for the park and the staff.

We sell handmade Native American art, jewelry & pottery, as well as a wide variety of regional, hard to find books. All of our profits are turned back to Palo Duro Canyon SP to help purchase necessary items the staff may need for the Park.

Hello friends! Hope you are all well and safe after yesterday's storms. We are here at the Canyon Gallery/Visitor's Center in Palo Duro Canyon and just wanted to share with you a new friend that we met in the store today. Meet Mya. Mya is from Florida and she grew up hearing about the PDC from her mother who was here during the famous "Flood of 1978". She was sharing the story with one of our volunteers when we told her that we had some pictures that we had been selling of that particular event. Who would have ever guessed that Mya would find not one, but three pictures of her mother in the mix! We were all very excited to put this story and photos together. Thank you Mya for taking the time to stop in and share your story. We wish you the best on your journey ahead and hope you will stop in again soon and say hello. The moral of our story is that there is always something fun and interesting to find or learn here at the store! Come by and see us really soon!

Good morning friends! Hope everyone is having a fantastic Wednesday! We are currently looking for indivuals to volunteer here at the Canyon Gallery. The ad is listed below. Feel free to message us if you are interested.
Have a great rest of your day!

Partners In Palo Duro Canyon is formed as an educational and charitable support group for Palo Duro Canyon State Park. Through recruitment and organization of volunteers, finances and resources, Partners in Palo Duro Canyon Foundation will enhance the educational, interpretive and recreational opportunities of the Park.
Volunteers are an essential key to our success at the Canyon Gallery/Visitors Center in Palo Duro Canyon. Without the volunteers, we could not meet the goals that we have nor could we accommodate, meet and greet all visitors who come to our park. Not only do you have the opportunity to meet some very unique individuals but also to get to know our great park staff. Often times, there will be an educational program that is held within our Visitor’s Center that you will have the chance to listen in on and learn something new about our beautiful State Park.
Our volunteers sign up to work 4 hour shifts (either 9:00 am to 1:00 pm or 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm) Monday through Saturday and Sundays (1:00 pm – 5:00 pm). There are experienced individuals as well as training videos waiting to help get you up to speed on information and the history of our store and our park. Each of our volunteers receives credit for hours worked and will receive a gift card at the end of each fiscal year for the amount of hours worked. This gift card is for purchases in our Canyon Gallery gift shop. In addition, volunteers also receive a 20% discount off of one item purchased in the store.
Unique, educational, opportunistic, adventurous, are just a few of the words we use to describe the wonderful experience you will find in volunteering with Partners In Palo Duro Canyon Foundation.
Let us help you explore a new and adventurous journey!

Interested individuals can contact us through email at [email protected] or by calling 806-488-2506 and asking to speak to David.

Our Annual Dinner was awesome this year! Thank you to all who were able to come out and help us celebrate another successful year here at the Canyon Gallery. A very special thank you to our guest speaker, Teddy Draper, III, for sharing your story with us. We all should strive to bring out our "Inner Warrior" to make it through this crazy thing we call life!
There was much to celebrate, including 3 of our retired volunteers, who have dedicated so much of themselves to the Canyon and our store. Rick Aldridge, Mary Splawn and Betty Rathjen, again, we say "Thank you"!
If you missed this year, you might want to put it down in your calendar for next year. Lots of fun, food and fellowship! Can't beat it!

This sight never gets old!! I caught the sun trying to break through the clouds this morning. To me this gave a since of hope...This is a spiritual canyon for many of us.
This will be another hot day here, so be sure, if you're going to hike, to take enough water. There have been several rattlebug sightings, so just be aware of your surroundings....

The fire dangers today are no joke! Please be aware of the extreme dangers today, and obey the Park rules.
Stay hydrated, and come cool off while you shop with us today!!

Critical to extremely critical fire weather conditions across the Panhandles today which includes strong winds and high temps ranging from the 90s to near 100 degrees.

How cool!!

How cool!!

We were fortunate to help guide the folks from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Magazine to some of the remote areas around the park, including some of our favorite slots. In the April addition of that magazine they included a featured story "Undiscovered Palo Duro: Exploring the park's wild slot canyons and hoodoos" where they detailed the series of hikes that we and others guided them on.

It's always enjoyable to share wonders of nature with those who fully appreciate it as deeply as you do. If you're not already a subscriber, then you need to be.

The story may get included on their web site in a couple of weeks and we'll post a link here if they do, but that's no excuse for not getting your own subscription now. Here are a few of our photos from some of those hikes.

"It acts like an oven as the walls of the canyon heat up and it just projects that heat to the center of the canyon," said Michael Gittinger with the National Weather Service in Amarillo, "That really allows it to warm up a lot more than the rest of the county."

A quick reminder Spring Breakers, the Park is currently under a Burn Ban! We’ve gone over 140 without any moisture, so please obey all Park rules about the Burn Ban.
We need some rain, y’all!!

With spring break quickly approaching, we want to remind you that Palo Duro Canyon State Park and the surrounding counties remain in a burn ban. It has been over 140 days without essential moisture and the fire danger remains high. No fires or open flame are permitted unless it is a containerized fuel source with an on/off valve. “Be smart, be responsible, be Firewise.”

*** Post is outdated...There were some storms in the Childress area this evening, however light rain showers will be possible this evening over the far southeast Texas Panhandle. Light snow will be possible mainly across the north later tonight. See our latest graphicast for further details ***

A good way to describe the next 24 hours, a taste of the Four Seasons! 🌤️🌩️❄️☔ Indeed, some areas today may start this afternoon with a chance of thunderstorms to a chance of some snow showers by tomorrow morning.
