PANGUITCH — The Powell Ranger District of Dixie National Forest will open the Red Canyon Visitor Center for the 2012 season on April 6.
The center will initially be open Friday through Monday during April, and then expand operations to seven days a week starting May 1. Hours of operation will be 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.

The Art Gallery at the visitors center will have three painting exhibits this season featuring local southern Utah artists. The opening art exhibit will be Panguitch artist Virginia Valcourt, a painter who will feature oil paintings along with pen and ink drawings of the Red Canyon area.
