The new Friends of Red Rock Canyon 2014 Brochure is now available.
It includes a handy map of our favorite park!
There are several slots available on the Friends of Red Rock Canyon board as some members have moved on to other endeavors. If you are passionate about our park and interested in contributing on the board, please join us at our next meeting:
The next Board of Directors February meeting will be at 6:30 PM, Monday, March 10, 2014 at Shanti Toll’s home. Call 321-5354 to get directions, if you would like to come.
Many thanks to Karl Klepfer for his time as president of FoRRC. We wish him luck!
Pond Restoration Fundraising Suspended
Due to the heavy rains this fall, the ponds in the Red Rock Canyon Open Space are once again filled with water. We therefore have suspended out fundraising efforts to refill “save” the pond. The nearly $12,000 that was raised to restore the pond is being held in a dedicated account for such time that the pond restoration project needs to be revived.
Thank you for your contributions and support. Please be assured that all monies donated for the pond will be spent exclusively for pond restoration and improvement. In the meantime, contributions to the general fund continue to help with other vital Red Rock Canyon preservation projects.
The Board of Directors has postponed the Annual Meeting to Monday, May 12 at the West Community Center (16th Street and Bijou St.) at 6:30 PM. This shift will allow for a Red Rock Rag newsletter to come out with the whole of the summer programs of education and trail building. We will also have a better idea of what the City’s plans are for Red Rock Canyon.
At the meeting we will elect new officers and set priorities for the coming year. If you would like to nominate someone for the Board of Directors or if you have questions or concerns for the Annual Membership Meeting email us or call acting president, Shanti Toll at 719-321-5354.View Event Details »
