Volunteering at Red Rock Canyon

Have you ever wondered how you could help preserve, protect or enhance one of your favorite recreational places? Volunteer!

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area has close to 200,000 acres of climbing routes, hiking, cycling and equestrian trails, a beautiful Visitor Center and some amazing Rock Stars – the resident desert tortoise.  With almost 4,000,000 visitors using the area each year, Red Rock can use all the help it can get!

Visitor Center Information Desk

Close to 750,000 people come into the Visitor Center annually. The information desk is typically staffed by two people during each morning and afternoon shift.

Tortoise Habitat

The best job at Red Rock involves helping with the care and feeding of the 9 resident desert tortoises.  7 females live in one large habitat and 2 males have their own. Habitat volunteers also interact with Red Rock guests and will likely develop a strong bond with at least one of the Rock Stars.

Want something a little more active?

How about canyon clean-up, maintaining and improving the trees and native plants, helping to increase the hummingbird population, repairing trails, documenting and preserving our Native American cultural sites, graffiti removal and helping on community volunteer days.

Volunteers will need to go through a BLM Orientation and special training for some of the positions.

A few of the benefits of volunteering:

Friends of Red Rock Canyon provides appreciation awards, nametags and the opportunity to meet others who love and support Red Rock Canyon.

The Bureau of Land Management provides free annual passes to volunteers based on their hours of service.
