Red Rock to Host Make a Difference Day Event Saturday


Las Vegas Joining the nation’s largest day of volunteering at Red Rock Canyon sound like your cup of tea?  While it won’t be steaming hot, it will be a great opportunity to join Make a Difference Day.

 

October 27 will provide an opportunity to contribute your time to give back to one of the most serene areas in Southern Nevada.  Volunteers will assist the BLM and the Public Lands Institute by pruning scrubs, weeding, trail building, fence building and tree planting.

 

Water, snacks and lunch will be provided.

 

Sign up in advance at www.getoutdoorsnevada.org or meet at Red Rock’s visitor center at 7:30 a.m.  The projects will last until about noon.

 

Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

 

Please wear closed-toe shoes, dress in layers and bring sunscreen and a hat.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
