Volunteer Project
at the historic Holly Ash Mine


Join Red Rock Canyon State Park staff on Saturday April 6 at 9 a.m. for a volunteer project at the historic Holly Ash Mine! The public is invited to help with graffiti removal and repairs due to vandalism that has accumulated at the historic site. Pumice was extracted from the mine in past decades to be used in cleaning materials and other products, and many interesting historic features are still on site to explore.

Check in for this event at the park Visitor Center at the end of Abbot Drive, off Highway 14. A high-clearance or 4x4 vehicle is necessary to reach the project area after check-in. Volunteers of all physical abilities are welcome. Bring work gloves, water, your lunch, and layered clothing; food and water are not available near the work site. A hat and sunscreen are also recommended. Minors may participate if accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, or youth groups may be approved in advance.

Red Rock Canyon State Park is located on Highway 14 between Mojave and Ridgecrest. Hundreds of movies and commercials have been filmed at this park, known for its dramatic scenery and colorful geology. For more information about the park or this event, visit,, or, or call (661) 946-6900.
