This year’s Red Rock Day event was hosted by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and held on a beautiful spring day at the First Creek Trail within the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. Forty-seven volunteers as well as eight staff members from the BLM, Southern Nevada Conservancy, and the Friends of Red Rock Canyon participated in Red Rock Day.
Volunteers formed into six teams and they successfully cleaned approximately 25 graffiti sites along the First Creek Trail. An additional team removed one mile of old cable and eight fence posts.
Morning snacks were provided by REI, and lunch by Friends of Red Rock Canyon. Southern Nevada Conservancy staff assisted with registration and lunch as well as staffing an Earth Day education table for volunteers and hikers.
