Saturday is another fee-free day at the National Parks. Why? Because it’s National Public Lands Day. According to Wikipedia, NPLD is “A signature event of the National Environmental Education Foundation, it promotes both popular enjoyment and volunteer conservation of public lands.”
If you choose to volunteer on NPLD through the Bureau of Land Management you will will receive a voucher for your own fee-free day at any property managed by the Bureau. Not a bad deal, I’d say. The event happens every year at the end of September, and since I’m going to a wedding this Saturday, I’m going to look into volunteering next year, perhaps at Great Falls.

Anybody planning on volunteering? Or perhaps just enjoying a National Park for free? If so, which one?
