Plan Now to Attend National Public Lands Day in Cedar City


Cedar City, UT- The Bureau of Land Management Cedar City Field Office will host National Public Lands Day at the “C” Trail in Cedar City on September 29, 2012 from 9 am to noon. Get involved in your public lands with improvement projects on the C-Trail base, C-Trail Overlook, and trails throughout the area.

Bring your family and friends to Bi-Centennial Park (660 W. 1045 N.) at 9 am on September 29 for workgroup assignments. From there volunteers will disperse to designated areas to perform trail work, sign installation, bench refurbishing, weed control, trash clean up and more. Be prepared with water, snacks, work clothes and hiking boots.

This is a great opportunity to volunteer with your family and friends in your community. Additionally, your participation in National Public Lands Day will get you a free T-shirt and fee free pass to public lands. For more information contact Jen Evans at 435-865-3012. You can also find information on BLM’s website http://www.blm.gov/ut/st/en/fo/cedar_city.html.


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.
