Would you like to be a volunteer at beautiful Red Rock Canyon State Park? Learn about the volunteer program and the park’s natural and cultural history at our two-day volunteer training, Saturdays, Sept. 1st and 8th from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the Ricardo Visitor Center (new volunteers must attend both days).
Volunteers may assist with the activities of their choice such staffing the visitor center, maintenance projects, habitat restoration, leading trail tours, assisting with school programs, manning festival booths, and individual projects. The training includes the lifeways of the Kawaiisu (Nüwa) Indians, local wildflowers and wildlife, geology and fossils, the colorful history of the region such as homesteaders and movie filming, and much more!
No prior experience or knowledge is required. Volunteers may range in age from student to senior citizen, must be interested in learning, and must have a positive, friendly attitude. Applicants must attend both training days and pass a background check before beginning volunteer service.
