Nissan today revealed the Ultimate Parks TITAN, a purpose-built park support vehicle that will be donated to the Grand Canyon Conservancy through Nissan TITAN’s partnership with the National Park Foundation.
The Ultimate Parks TITAN will be used to assist the organization’s Canyon Field School, a partnership between Grand Canyon Conservancy and the National Park Service that offers unique opportunities for youth to experience the great outdoors in the heights and depths of Grand Canyon National Park.
