BLM to Host April 18 - Get Outdoors at Red Rock Open House


Las Vegas – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Red Rock/Sloan Field Office will host an open house on April 18 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  The open house will highlight recreation opportunities on public land and will focus on full-time commercial outfitters and guides at Red Rock Canyon.

Off-road, hiking, biking, climbing and horseback tour companies will be at the open house and several will have tours starting from the visitor center or a nearby designated area. Some will offer discounts for future expeditions.

Participating companies include Bobcat Tours, Escape Adventures, McGhie’s Bike Outpost, Cowboy Trail Rides, and Red Rock Riding Stables, Jackson Hole Mountain Guides and American Alpine Institute.

The Southern Nevada Agency Partnership Explore RV with information about recreational opportunities throughout southern Nevada will be on hand with interactive exhibits and rangers to answer questions. The Red Rock Canyon Interpretive Association, Friends of Red Rock Canyon and the BLM will also have information and programs to assist visitors in planning their summer explorations of public lands.  

This open house is part of a series the third Thursday of each month to give the public an opportunity to meet BLM staff, get information about projects and planning, and ask questions about the management of Red Rock and Sloan Canyon National Conservation Areas and Walking Box Ranch.

When participants enter the fee booth at the entrance of the 13-Mile Scenic Drive, they should tell the attendant that they are participating in the open house and fees will be waived.

If you have any questions, please contact Kathy August at kaugust@blm.gov 702-515-5361.



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.
