Grass Roots Organization

  • Save Red Rock Team

    They banded together to preserve the peace in their rural town. Along the way, the big city next door took up the fight, too.

    To city dwellers on the neon-lit side of Blue Diamond Hill, the small burg nestled in the western crux of the 159 might seem a bit eerie at night. So quiet, so dark. But to the 300 residents of Blue Diamond, it’s a peace worth fighting for — as is the family-friendly atmosphere that permeates the school, library, park, theater and swimming pool in the former gypsum-mine company town.

The Don Albietz Inspiration

  • Don Albietz & Family

    As such an honorable and influential member of the community was lost, the Don Albietz tragedy struck deep and wide. You may remember the Las Vegas Metro Police Officer who was killed in 2005 while riding his bike in Red Rock Canyon. As a husband, father, friend, police officer, little league coach, Ironman athlete and community hero, his life inspired the entire community to come together to fight for safer and better conditions in Red Rock Canyon, and www.saveredrock.com was born.

Current Effort: Get the Lead Out Of Lovell Canyon

Lovell Canyon is now a significant initiative for Save Red Rock after soil tests conducted in the canyon by Save Red Rock reveal lead concentrations more than 30 times above what is deemed safe. Known neurotoxin and carcinogen, lead concentrations found in target shooting areas along Lovell Canyon Road range from 1,600 ppm to 44,000 ppm; safe levels should not exceed 1.400 ppm. The Brett Torino Foundation has furnished a financial gift to Save Red Rock specifically for Lovell Canyon and to aid in the restoration of the area.
