Bring Your Camera to the Red cliffs Natural Conservation Area

The Red Cliffs Natural Conservation Area in southwestern Utah offers outstanding opportunities for communing with nature without lots of tourists. You’ll see dinosaur tracks and trackways, bone beds, plant fossils and petrified wood, but very few people. Just you, your camera, and the Red Cliffs.

Take pictures of the dwarf bear poppy and Shivwits milkvetch, small native plants that grow nowhere else on earth. The hot, arid Mojave Desert provides habitat for diverse wildlife species such as the kit fox, Gambel’s quail, and the Mojave Desert tortoise. This native tortoise is listed under the Endangered Species Act and is at risk of extinction due to habitat loss and other factors. The Red Cliffs National Conservation Area conserves and protects these incredible plants and animals for the benefit and enjoyment of present and future generations. So, bring your camera and photograph these unique creatures now!
