Our History

The Red Rock Canyon Chapter of NSDAR was founded on June 23, 2014. Our 33 charter members named the chapter in honor of the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, which is a 195,819 acre area offering breathtaking scenery, world class hiking, and numerous outdoor activities. Today our chapter has already grown to over 50 members.   

To be good, and do good, is the whole duty of man comprised in a few words.
— Abigail Adams
