Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area
Celebrate National Invasive Species Awareness Week with Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area! Learn about the invasive plant species that threaten the Mojave Desert ecosystem and how you can help stop their spread. Meet a BLM Ranger and an SNC Naturalist at Pine Creek trailhead as you learn what makes a species invasive and what you can do to help. Afterwards, you’ll get a chance to participate in some citizen science as you help document the spread of invasive species. To participate in the data collection, please download the iNaturalist phone app before you arrive, as there is no cell service at the location.
