BLM Kingman to Host National Public Lands Day Event

Kingman, Ariz. –To celebrate National Public Lands Day (NPLD) and the America’s Great Outdoors Initiative, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Kingman Field Office, along with the Dolan Springs Open Space Committee, will host a National Public Lands Day volunteer event on Saturday, September 28, 2013, from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

To promote sustainable trail design and construction practices while educating the public on the importance of wilderness, volunteers are needed for trail construction in Antelope Canyon near the Mt. Tipton Wilderness access point. The first 40 participants will receive a free NPLD t-shirt.

Volunteers should meet at the LDS church parking lot in Dolan Springs, Arizona, off of Pierce Ferry Road at 7:30 a.m. The volunteers will be shuttled to the work site from the LDS church.

Volunteers are asked to bring trail construction tools such as shovels, pulaskis, picks, etc. and also bring gloves, hats, sunscreen, and plenty of water. We will be working through lunch so it would also be good idea to bring a lunch.

For more information about this event, please contact Kingman Field Office Outdoor Recreation Planner Matt Driscoll at 928-718-3736.  

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 2014, the BLM generated $5.2 billion in receipts from public lands.
