Red Cliffs NCA’s 13th Birthday
March 26 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Happy Birthday, Red Cliffs NCA!
Join Conserve Southwest Utah on Saturday, March 26th from 9 am to 12 pm to celebrate the 13th anniversary of the Omnibus Public Land Management Act and the establishment of the Red Cliffs and Beaver Dam Wash NCA’s. This is a birthday celebration and morning-of-giving in honor of our beloved Red Cliffs NCA.
Please RSVP using this Google Form.
You’ll be participating in a small volunteer project at the Cottonwood Trailhead before enjoying birthday cake and conversation with CSU’s Public Lands team. Together, we’ll be working in a habitat restoration plot to rake Globemallow, Green Ephedra, Galleta Grass and Sandberg Bluegrass seed mixture into the soil of an area devastated by a human-caused wildfire. This volunteer activity will require the ability to climb and descend a short-but-steep hill and to rake the soil with a garden rake. Adult supervision is necessary for minors. This is an outside, open-air project where social distancing can be maintained.
Please arrive on time. Together, we will be traveling to an unmarked, off-trail habitat restoration plot no later than 9:15 am.
– You must bring at least one liter of water
– Wear clothes you’re comfortable getting dirty
– Closed toed shoes
– Rake, hard or soft (please bring an extra to share if you have one)
– If you own work gloves, please bring them
