First summer Talk and Walk by Friends of Red Rock Canyon July 12With a presentation by local author/historian Don Ellis Wednesday, July 12, the Friends of Red Rock Canyon group will resume its annual summer Talk and Walk series.
Ellis will discuss the history of the land that has since become the city's Red Rock Canyon Open Space. The starting time is 5:30 p.m. The location will be in the park itself, followed by “a short easy walk to stone quarries, clay and limestone mines and the remains of a gold mill,” according to a Friends press release.
The talk is free, but “space is limited,” the release notes. People interested can RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling David Valier at 685-4792.
“This will be our first Talk and Walk this summer,” the release continues. “Others are being planned with sessions on plants (July 31) and geology (August 15), with hopefully more!”
