National Public Lands Day Celebration in Lake Havasu City


Lake Havasu City, Ariz. – To celebrate National Public Lands Day (NPLD) and the America’s Great Outdoors Initiative, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Lake Havasu City have teamed up to do some maintenance in SARA Park.  BLM and LHC invite you to join us for the event on Saturday, December 1, 2012, from 9 to 11 a.m.

All volunteers need to park at the SARA Park Rodeo Grounds and then will be shuttled to the trailhead for registration.  Tasks for volunteers will include signing trails, trash clean-up, and kiosk maintenance and repair.  Environmental education displays will also be available for the public to view.

“This will be a perfect opportunity to help spruce up a great public area in Lake Havasu City,” said BLM Lake Havasu Field Manager Kim Liebhauser.  “The weather should be wonderful, so we hope to see lots of people come out to this event.”

There will be free t-shirts for the first 200 volunteers and Lake Havasu City will host a barbeque lunch following the event.  Don’t forget to bring your gloves, hats, and sunscreen. 

If you have any questions, please contact the BLM Lake Havasu Field Office at 928-505-1200 or Lake Havasu City at 928-453-4141.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
