The Friends of Red Rock Canyon would like to establish a new trail connecting the two main canyons, called “The Heart of the Canyon.” Please view our video, Heart of the Canyon, for more information. https://youtu.be/q4UxDru_wew
This is a citywide BioBlitz in which we will be participating on April 26-29. Over 100 other cities on six continents will also be participating in this. Essentially this program invites citizens to get outside, find wildlife, plants and insects across the city, take photos of as many species as they can find and upload them into a website so we can categorize all that we discover. More information can be found here. Red Rock Canyon Open Space will also conduct a Bioblitz in July to identify flora and fauna in our park so stay tuned!
