National Public Lands Day is also National Hunting and Fishing Day


The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service celebrates National Public Lands Day by highlighting the millions of acres of lands within the National Wildlife Refuge System. Visit one of these beautiful places this weekend for FREE and observe the myriad of species that rely on this land for their food, water and habitat. Many of these species may be hunted or fished, so it is no surprise that this Saturday is also designated as National Hunting and Fishing Day.

Hispanic Americans: Embracing, Enriching, and Enabling America


In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month - celebrated from September 15 to October 15 - we recognize the contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States and join them in celebrating their heritage and culture.  Hispanics have had a profound and positive influence on our country through their strong commitment to family, faith, hard work, and service.  The Service, in our efforts to provide an all inclusive workforce, celebrates the achievements of these individuals who have enhanced and shaped our national character with centuries-old traditions that reflect cultural customs and the importance of conserving our nation's natural resoucres.
