BLM Celebrates National Public Lands DayThanks to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and local volunteers, campsites in the Pine Creek Canyon received new facilities.
In honor of National Public Lands Day, about 20 volunteers, including BLM employees and members of the Cokeville Boy Scout Troop #600, gathered to install picnic tables and fire rings in six campsites. The campsites are in the canyon located five miles northeast of Cokeville.
Wally Mierzejewski, BLM outdoor recreation planner, thanked all the volunteers for participating in this worthy project. “Public lands belong to everyone and the installation of the new tables and fire rings will be there for everyone’s enjoyment,” Mierzejewski said.
All the volunteers were presented with a National Public Lands Day T-shirt and a hamburger and hot dog cook out.
