First Lady Michelle Obama will visit Las Vegas next week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced this morning.

Sun columnist Jon Ralston first reported the visit earlier today.

Obama, who is scheduled to attend the Women's Summit 2010 in Reno on the morning of June 1, will add Las Vegas to her trip in the afternoon.

In Las Vegas, Obama and Reid will travel to the visitors center at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, where they will attend an event focusing on increasing children’s outdoor activities. Rhea Suh, assistant secretary at the Department of the Interior, and other officials will help launch the initiative, called Let’s Move Outside!, at Red Rock.

The Las Vegas event begins at 2:45 p.m. June 1.
