Rock Rock's Unique Resources

The unique geologic features, plants and animals of Red Rock Canyon NCA represent some of the best examples of the Mojave Desert. Scant rainfall and scarce permanent water, along with desiccating winds and high temperatures make this a harsh environment for plants and wildlife, yet a surprising number of plants and animals inhabit the Red Rock Canyon NCA.
