Trailwork at Petroglyph Canyon! - (UNLVolunteers)

We're teaming up with UNLVolunteers to get some much needed trail work done at Sloan Canyon National Conservation Area's Petroglyph Canyon Trail! We will meet at 8:30 at the Visitor's Center and hike 1/4 mile into the wash where we will construct a rock stair. This rock stair will replace an unsafe entry way for the wash and, over time, will help to lessen erosion impacts along this section of the trail. 

In November 2002, Congress designated the Sloan Canyon National Conservation Area (NCA) to preserve and protect a portion of southern Nevada’s Mojave Desert for future generations.  The 48,438 acre national conservation area forms the southern mountainous skyline of Las Vegas and the City of Henderson.  The Sloan Canyon Petroglyph Site is one of the most significant, scenic, and important cultural resources in southern Nevada having more than 300 rock art panels, and nearly 1,700 designs representing native cultures dating from Archaic to historic era. 


What You'll Need:  Wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes, long-sleeved shirt and long pants.  Bring a water bottle, sunscreen, lunch (optional), and snacks for yourself.  


See you there!
