Get Outside for Public Lands Day

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) encourages the public to get outdoors Sept. 24 in honor of National Public Lands Day. Established in 1994, it celebrates the connection between people and the environment and promotes the use of outdoor public spaces for recreation, education and volunteer opportunities to participate in hands-on land conservation for present and future generations.
