Volunteers Needed for National Public Lands Day Event near Lake City


LAKE CITY, Colo. – The BLM is seeking volunteers for the National Public Land Day Event on Devils Creek Trail near Lake City on Sept. 22 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.  The trail needs heavy maintenance to reduce erosion. 

 
“It will be a fun day of rewarding hard work,” said Jim Lovelace, BLM recreation planner.
 
Volunteers should come prepared with sturdy shoes, work gloves, lunch and water.  The staff will meet volunteers at the Devils Creek Bridge at 9 a.m.
 
“Volunteers and good partnerships are the only way we can get projects like this completed,” said Lovelace. “We appreciate the publics’ willingness to help maintain trails throughout the Gunnison Field Office.”
 
For more information, contact Lovelace at 970-642-4953.


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.
