Help bring wildfire-damaged areas of the Red Cliffs National Conservation Areas back to life by watering and weeding baby plants in vegetation plots. These plots are part of an experiment to re-establish native plants like globe mallow and creosote that provide food and shelter for many desert animals.

Thursday, July 18th 10 – 11 am: Meet a live Mojave Desert Tortoise, Gila monster and Sonoran Mountain King Snake while learning about the amazing animals that live in this special “ecotone” we call home! Join us at the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve Visitor Center, 10 N 100 E, downtown St. George.

Friday, July 19th 7:30 – 10 am: Sunrise hike and yoga on the Cottonwood Canyon Trail in the Cottonwood Canyon Wilderness. Located inside the Red Cliffs National Conservation Area, this incredible wilderness is just a 15-minute drive from downtown St. George.
