Southern Nevada Rock Art Association, SNRAA, (pronounced “sun-ray”) is a group of dedicated people who have a common interest in rock art. Meetings are held the fourth Monday of each month from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the REI store in Boca Park, 710 S. Rampart Boulevard in Las Vegas. (More information on the EVENTS page). Our meetings are open to the public and are free of charge. We feature well-known, exciting speakers talking about rock art  and archaeology.

    SNRAA was incorporated as a non-profit in 2002 for the purpose of providing free educational programs to the public and assisting local government agencies in the study, preservation and protection of rock art in Southern Nevada.

    With the thousands of new residents wanting to familiarize themselves with our beautiful desert and its cultural sites, there is danger of the area being loved to death. SNRAA strongly supports efforts to monitor and report site threats to land managing agencies. Many of our members are site stewards who frequently check their sites and report back to the Cultural Site Stewardship Program headed by the State Historic Preservation Office’s (SHPO). If you are interested in participating in the effort to save our sites, please contact Samantha Rubinson at  srubinson@shpo.nv.gov.


    Recording or documenting rock art is another way to get involved in preservation. By having a record of the rock art we can assist land managers in research, protection, repairs or furnishing evidence in court cases. Nevada Rock Art Foundation is a state-wide volunteer based organization that provides up-to-date recording techniques. If this interests you, please contact http://www.nvrockart.org/
