PRESCOTT—The preservation of one of the most beloved areas of Arizona for tourists and residents, the red rocks of Sedona and the Verde Valley, will be the topic of a presentation to the Yavapai County Democratic Party on Thursday, March 9, 5:30 p.m. at the Adult Center, 1280 E. Rosser St. in Prescott.
The group Save Our Ancient Red Rocks (SOAR), represented by member Paul Schwartz, will show a film and talk about the effort to turn the area into a national park. Schwartz said he will also discuss the Western Land Movement and how it is a threat to federal lands throughout the state, like the Prescott National Forest. Those who plan to attend the meeting MUST call to make a reservation in advance to ensure there will be space. To RSVP, call (928) 541-0413.
