Up Close and Personal – Morning with the Tortoise Team

Friends of Red Rock Canyon

Every morning, the Friends’ Tortoise team visits the Tortoise habitat at Red Rock Canyon to tend to our most famous residents.

If you want to become a volunteer team member, you will be trained and scheduled as a habitat worker. You will be sure they are watered and examine them for ticks, among your duties. You will contribute to record keeping for the 10 Desert Tortoises as well as coordinate routine maintenance. You often work in cooperation with the Master Gardeners.

Contact Chelsea Conlin to learn more about volunteering.
