Each year, The Bureau of Land Management

celebrates National Public Lands Day by coordinating

and participating in hundreds of outdoor clean up and improvement

projects across the country.

This year, the Pinedale Field Office will celebrate National

Public Lands Day on Saturday, Sept. 7, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

at the Civilian Conservation Corps Ponds, just south of Fremont

Lake. The CCC Ponds are a popular area for local residents

due to its proximity to town and connectivity with trails

in the area.

This vast volunteer effort was established in 1994, and

helps connect people with the public land in their communities.

The BLM has hosted a Public Lands Day project at this

site in the past, but not in several years. According to event

coordinators, the site was selected this year because the area

is in need of trail and general maintenance.

The CCC Ponds are used by residents for hiking, biking,

fishing and wildlife viewing. Participants are invited to meet

at the CCC Ponds at 8 a.m. to do some trail work, brush cutting,

mowing and general cleanup. Everything needed for the

project will be provided, including gloves, tools and lunch for

all volunteers.

Appropriate clothing for hot weather, a hat and sunscreen

are strongly recommended. For more details about the project,

contact Joel Klosterman at 307-367-5388.
