National Public Lands Day - Saturday, September 25

By Corey Murzyn, Recreation Technician (STEP), Wyoming State Office

In an effort to improve and enhance the natural beauty of Wyoming, the BLM Wyoming is once again participating in National Public Lands Day (NPLD).

NPLD began in 1994 with the help of three federal agencies and 700 volunteers. Last September, over 150,000 volunteers worked at over 2,000 locations across America.

Currently, BLM is sponsoring two different projects to remove trash and invasive plants as well as maintaining trails and planting trees. The first will in Casper at Muddy Mountain. The second is the Beaver Creek Ski Area in Lander. Both events will run from 9 a.m. - 2 p. m.

Last September, volunteers removed an estimated 9,000 pounds of trash and planted over 100,000 trees, shrubs and other native plants across the country.

If you are interested in lending a hand on September 25, contact either the Casper or Lander Field Office.

More information on National Public Lands Day can be found at PublicLandsDay.org.
