The Upcoming National Public Lands Day Event

The Forrest Service Ranger who spoke at this week’s Troop meeting, Mr Bosworth, wanted to share the information below about the National Public Lands Day Event being held at Phon D Sutton Recreational Area. This is just a short 35 minute drive away for most of us. It certainly sounds like an exciting event for all who attend!

There is a large event/celebration on Saturday, September 28th for National Public Lands Day. The event will be at Phon D Sutton Recreation Area from 8:00am- 1:00pm. Setup times for partners, volunteers, and those with informational booths will be from 7:00am- 7:45am. There will be many partners & volunteer groups attending including REI, TRAL, Friends of Tonto National Forest, OdySea, No Snow, SRP, AZGFD, NFF, Arizona Wilderness Coalition, Backcountry Hunters & Anglers, and more! There will be lots of activities for families including mountain bike demos, kayaks, paddle boards, fishing opportunities, prevention activities, volunteer information, education, and even Smokey! The purpose is to show the public ways they can enjoy their public lands and give the partners an opportunity to provide information about what they do and ways to get involved. National Public Lands Day is also a fee free day!! Please feel free to come out and help or bring your families and come enjoy the day.
