    Gazette Recognizes Friends

    The Out There section of the Gazette recognized the Friends in their article “Here are 16 wonderful outdoor pursuits to explore in the year ahead”.  Number 12 was “Take a guided hike at Red Rock Canyon Open Space”.  The Friends of Red Rock Canyon do offer guided hikes through the Educational Series of Talk and Walks.  Many were delayed this past summer with the closure of Red Rock Canyon due to flood damage, but several were offered in August and September.  We hope to continue with our Educational Series this year.  If you are interested in a certain topic to cover, or know of someone (even you) who would be interested in presenting, please share with us by either calling David at 685-4792 or emailing us at http://friends@redrockcanyonopenspace.org

    Please let anyone know that might be interested in doing our Talk and Walks, they are announced primarily on our email list and website for reservations.  Thanks!

Upcoming Events

  • Manitou Trail CATS Workday

    Ute Indian Trail – General trail maintenance, repair and corridor clearing.

    We meet at 8 a.m. at a pre-determined site where we will sign waivers, assign crews and do the safety talk. We will car pool to the work sight. We work until 1 p.m and then go back to Manitou for a complimentary beer or beverage at a local tavern. Please register at www.ManitouCats.com if you want to volunteer, so we know how many tools and crew leaders we need. The work is mild to moderately difficult with a 1/3 to 2/3 mile hike to get to most worksites. Workdays are open to people 16 years and up. Bring a friend, be safe, give back to the land and enjoy the day with good people.
