Once a year we have a day to honor all our volunteers and supporting organizations/businesses. This is an opportunity to come out and talk with the FoRRC Board of Directors and other users of our Open Space. At the picnic area we have a number of information tables/tents for you to ask questions or give feedback to groups who have activities in RRC.
From 11:00 to 2:00 PM we will give out lemonade and visit with the public: giving and receiving information and suggestions. So come on down and visit as you hike, bike, run, rock climb, walk your dog or wander in nature on a beautiful summer day!

I am sure many of you saw the photography on the front page of the Gazette on 7/23/14. Just know that not only is it illegal per city ordinance to climb higher that 10 feet on the rocks as the person did to jump into the water, it is also unsafe & dangerous. You do not know what is under the water.
The person could have easily been killed by jumping into shallow water or on to a rock just under the surface.
Please DO NOT swim in any of the ponds at Red Rock Canyon as it is illegal to do so.
President, Friends of Red Rock Canyon
