Event Details

May is Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month! Join an Interpretive Naturalist for a fun hike celebrating Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islanders. This hike is open to all, but those who are Asian, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander are highly encouraged to join! At the beginning of the hike we will discuss how these groups are underrepresented in outdoor spaces and outdoor organizations and what being a part of these communities means to you. Along the way we will discuss the flora and fauna, Indigenous history of Red Rock Canyon, geology, and more.

The hike is 0.75 miles (1.21 km) long, has 200 feet (60 m) of elevation gain, and is rated as easy. It will take around 2-2.5 hours to complete. Along the way we will pass a variety of plants, as well as a cultural site where we will be able to see a pictograph.
