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) Lake Havasu Field Office will host a National Public Lands Day volunteer event at Partner’s Point on Saturday, September 28, 2013, from 8 to 10 a.m.

All volunteers need to meet at the BLM Lake Havasu Field Office at 2610 Sweetwater Avenue, in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, at 7:30 a.m. Tasks for volunteers will include bundling brush piles, filling sandbags and tying them to the bundles, sorting recycling, beautifying the tortoise pen, and helping drop bundled piles into the lake.

Specialists from the BLM will be on hand to educate the public about the Fisheries Program and also the Recycling Program that was implemented last year.

“This is a perfect opportunity for the public to help with our Fisheries Program,” said BLM Lake Havasu Field Manager Kim Liebhauser. “We hope to see lots of people come out to this event.”

There will be free t-shirts for the first 50 volunteers and donuts/coffee/juice will be provided to the volunteers. 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.



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.
