This recreation area is part of the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve, a special cooperatively managed area north of St. George, UT that was set aside to preserve and protect habitat for the endangered Desert Tortoise.

The crew also worked to rehabilitate disturbance along the entrance road from a recent pipeline installation.  The crew worked to naturalize the disturbed area to improve the aesthetic appearance along the entrance road as well as allow a more suitable site for native vegetation to re-establish.
