National Public Lands Day

National Public Lands Day has to be one of my favorite events of the year. This year I attended NPLD in Gold Butte ACEC , the event was co-hosted by the Friends of Gold Butte and the BLM. We had diverse group of folks, sportmen , off-roaders, conservationists, hikers, and Wilderness folks all coming together for a common purpose, to protect the Falling Man. We fenced the parking area, restore an old route, and planted 50 native plants. There were lots of great folks who gave up their Saturday to give to their public lands. Manys thanks not onlt to these volunteers, but to all the volunteers everywhere who participated in National Public Lands across the country.
