A Talk on the Wild Side.
Saturday is packed with potential adventures for all outdoor enthusiasts.
YOUR public lands need you, so why not join with others in the nation’s largest, single-day volunteer effort for public lands?
The 25th annual National Public Lands Day (NPLD) is Saturday, September 22, and it’s a perfect time to connect with YOUR public lands and communities. As an extra incentive, you can visit national wildlife refuges and other federally managed public lands free.

National wildlife refuges and national fish hatcheries across the country are just waiting for you.
Saturday is also National Hunting and Fishing Day, which celebrates the important role sports men and -women play in conservation, and Back Bay Refuge has you covered there as well.
After the morning’s cleanup, a local anglers group will talk about surf fishing from the refuge beach.
I am working all day this Saturday, you say. Is there anything the next week?

Of course, you don’t need an event. It is never a bad time to visit YOUR public lands. National fish hatcheries and national wildlife refuges will do their best to make you feel at home whenever you visit.
Explore the outdoors. You might be surprised at how much you enjoy it.
