Friends of Red Rock Annual Luncheon

You’ve done a lot to help preserve and protect Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. Friends of Red Rock Canyon would like to take you to lunch to celebrate!
We’re excited about the Annual Volunteer Appreciation and Recognition Luncheon. It is our chance to thank the wonderful people who donate their time and talents to keep Red Rock Canyon intact for future generations.
Registration for the luncheon is open until 11:59 pm on Monday,  November 12.
Please RSVP for this by clicking on the “Register Now” link below.
 
Remember, registration will close automatically at 11:59 pm on Monday, November 12, or when 100 guests have registered.

Have you ever wondered how you could help preserve, protect or enhance one of your favorite recreational places? Volunteer!

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area has close to 200,000 acres of climbing routes, hiking, cycling and equestrian trails, a beautiful Visitor Center and some amazing Rock Stars – the resident desert tortoise. There are also almost 2,000,000 visitors using the area each year so Red Rock can use all the help it can get!

A few of the benefits of volunteering:

 

  • The Bureau of Land Management provides free annual passes to volunteers based on their hours of service.
  • Friends of Red Rock Canyon also provide appreciation awards, such as an annual banquet, name tags and Friends wearables based upon their volunteer hours.

What are you interested in doing or learning more about? Red Rock has many opportunities for you to try ranging from volunteering at the Information Desk to working on trails and removing graffiti.

Listed below are some positions that might interest you.

 Information Desk – There are about 500,000 people coming into the Visitor Center annually. The information desk is typically staffed by two people during each morning and afternoon shift. During peak visitation periods, the need for friendly faces dispensing information increases.

• Tortoise Habitat Volunteers – The best job at the Rock involves helping with the care and feeding of the ten resident desert tortoises. The eight females live in one large habitat and the two males each have a separate habitat. Volunteers also interact with Red Rock guests and will likely develop a strong bond with at least one of the Rock Stars.

• Want something a little more active? How about trash collection, maintaining and improving the trees and native plants, helping to increase the monarch population, repairing trails, documenting and preserving our Native American cultural sites, helping on community volunteer days and removing graffiti.

You can find out more about these and other volunteer opportunities by going to theCommittees page or by emailing us at volunteer@friendsofredrockcanyon.org.
