Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area
Red Rock Canyon was designated as Nevada's first National Conservation Area. The area is visited by more than two million people each year. In marked contrast to a town geared to entertainment and gaming, Red Rock offers spectacular desert landscape, climbing and hiking opportunities and interpretive programs sponsored by the BLM Southern Nevada District. The unique geologic features, plants and animals of Red Rock represent some of the best examples of the Mojave Desert.
Three local artists have been selected for this year’s spring residency! Look for them out and about at Red Rock Canyon as they create artwork.
Angela Brommel, writer; residency dates: March 24-April 7, 2018
Christine Wilson, stained glass artist; residency dates: April 15-29, 2018
Christopher Tsouras, photographer; residency dates: May 1-15, 2018
