National Public Land Day is Saturday
National Public Land Day, the nation’s largest, single-day volunteer effort for public lands, is Saturday.
This year, the Grand Mesa Nordic Council is partnering with the Forest Service for a work day “sprucing up” the ski trails on the Grand Mesa.
Sept. 24 is also a fee-free day for all federal public lands and many state parks, with some federal lands also celebrating the National Park Service centennial.
