Wow-- you certainly have lots to do in your list!

First of all, if you haven't already got one, get yourself a Parks Pass:
http://www.nps.gov/findapark/passes.htm

This will give you free admission into the national parks and other federal lands and sites that have an entrance fee.

Rafting on the Colorado River (Grand Canyon) requires a reservation with any one of the outfitters that do these trips. My experience is that they fill up pretty fast, so keep that in mind for your planning.

Also, my personal opinion, is that I would concentrate on the mountainous areas and coastal areas for this trip. Moab, Zion, Capital Reef, Arches are just too unpleasantly hot in the summer. How about adding Glacier Park to your list? It's got a short season and July/August are good times to go. You could also spend more time in Colorado.
