JACKSON, Wyo. — This Saturday is Wyoming’s first Wyoming Public Lands Day.
Declared by Governor Mark Gordon on Sept. 3, Wyoming Public Lands Day is a chance to celebrate the vast public lands this state has to offer by simply visiting them.
There are also opportunities to take care of them. Bridger-Teton National Forest will join other public land management agencies, partner organizations, and public land supporters to facilitate a variety of stewardship project opportunities throughout Teton County and across the Bridger-Teton National Forest.
Friends of the Bridger-Teton is hosting an 8 a.m. morning kick-off event at the Jackson Hole & Greater Yellowstone Visitor Center with guest speakers, breakfast, and an information and carpool hub for multiple volunteer projects. The Forest Friends’ Public Lands Day Celebration has been selected as a sponsored National Public Lands Day event by the National Environmental Education Foundation, and is one of 30 highlighted public land events in the country.
Join in the celebration of Wyoming Public Lands Day by participating in a service project this Saturday. Come prepared for a day of work outside with layers, gloves, sunscreen, snacks, and plenty of water.

- Sheep Gulch river access trail project on the Snake River
