Event Details

Long before it was a desert, southern Nevada was part of a tropical sea. For over 250 million years, ancient organisms struggled for their survival in a vibrant, rich environment today preserved as the limestones of the mountains above and below Red Rock Canyon. Join a Bureau of Land Management ranger for a 30-minute talk at the Visitor Center to learn about Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area’s ancient marine fossils and what they can tell us about the oceans of prehistoric Nevada.

Interpretive programs at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area are a free public service. No registration is required for this program.
