One of the most well-known attractions at Valley of Fire State Park is the Native American petroglyphs found at Atlatl Rock, which date back hundreds to even thousands of years. Children that would like to learn more about these fascinating carvings that depict a wide variety of shapes and figures should meet at Atlatl Rock picnic area at 1:30pm. Children will be provided with the materials to make their own petroglyphs, which will be theirs to keep. NOTE: During this activity, we will be carving into “faux” rocks made with arts & crafts materials. Please never carve, scratch, or in any other way deface any rock in the park.
