National Public Lands Day
We hope you will join us for a morning taking care of public lands!
Saturday, September 26, 2015, 8:30am - 12:30pm
Outdoor Projects: 9am - 12:30pm
Pizza lunch for all volunteers: 12:30pm
Then plan to join us in the afternoon of our Annual Open House (1:30-4:30).
National Public Lands Day gives people all across the country the opportunity to put their hands to work on projects to benefit public lands. Participants also learn about natural resource management and the need for shared stewardship of these lands.
In 2014, more than 100 volunteers showed up to help with work projects on the BLM Campbell Tract. Volunteers helped the BLM accomplish a great deal of backlog maintenance projects to keep Campbell Tract trails and trailheads looking great. Volunteers also helped with a variety of gardening and landscape projects around the Science Center building.
In the afternoon, visitors to our Open House visited a variety of outdoor activity stations with the "Let's Move Outside" theme, including archery, slacklining, disc golf, geocaching, birding, outdoor survival, and winter biking. We appreciated ADF&G, Geocache Alaska, Carpe Discus, REI, Best Beginnings, and the Municipality of Anchorage Parks and Recreation Department for coming to run stations or provide materials for them!
