Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering is fun and rewarding as you have the satisfaction of knowing what you have accomplished. What is your interest? You can help feed and monitor our “Rock Stars”, the eight female and two male Desert Tortoises. Like outside activity? During all but the hot summer months our Natural Resource Team repair trails, perform area rehabilitation, do graffiti removal, and other physical activity. Our Native Plant Conservation and Restoration Team maintains the vegetation around the Visitor Center and grow new plants at Oliver Ranch. Do you like meeting people? We generally need help at the Information Desk or providing assistance with visitors in the Exhibit area. Our Red Rock Ambassador and Ask Me programs provide information assistance for visitors in parking areas and trails along the Scenic Loop drive. Or maybe you would like to do trail monitoring or become a hike leader.

Volunteer Hours Reporting

These are just some of the areas where you should report or log your time donated to benefit Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.

Your donated contributions are so valuable and necessary for the successful operations of Red Rock Canyon.

The Bureau of Land Management is continually facing budget and hiring restrictions. Each fiscal year, Friends volunteers add the equivalent of 10 to 11 full time employees working for the Rock.

Please contact us at info@friendsofredrockcanyon.org if you have any questions about your volunteer service
