The Wyoming Division of State Parks, Historic Sites and Trails, in conjunction with various other state agencies celebrates Wyoming Public Lands Day September 25. As part of the celebration, day-use fees to all Wyoming state parks and historic sites that day are waived.

In proclaiming September 25 as Wyoming Public Lands Day, Gov. Mark Gordon said, “The multiple use of public lands provides value to the state’s economy through open spaces, diversity of mineral resources, grazing for livestock, forestry products, wildlife and recreational opportunities.”

Additionally, the goal of Public Lands Day is to get people out to Wyoming’s parks and historic sites to enjoy the values of public lands and to become stewards by helping with specific projects. Check the respective parks’ Facebook pages to see if there is an event near you.

National Public Lands Day is the nation's largest single-day volunteer event for public lands. Established in 1994 and held annually on the fourth Saturday in September, this celebration brings out thousands of volunteers to help restore and improve public lands around the country.
