Ranger-led trips in September?

Does anyone know if there will be any Ranger-led trips in September? Right now on the website you can only access pdfs for May - August.

On this page nps.gov/acad/planyourvisit/guidedtours.htm it says the ranger-led boat tours are mostly going out "through mid-October". I'd guess it will also be true for the other ranger-led programs. It's odd that they don't have a schedule up for September.

What worries me are the budget cuts. It's entirely possible that the page you referenced was written years ago. Fingers crossed.

When the Park opened the Park Loop Road some weeks later than usual this past

Spring, they did promise that they would not cut hours at the end of the season, when the Park is very popular with bus tours for fall foliage. Here's hoping that means the seasonal rangers will also keep their jobs through mid-October.

The park did announce that they were cutting many of the free Ranger led programs so they are offering less than last year. Hopefully not the ones you are interested in.
