Wyoming State Parks & Cultural Resources shares the following:

The Wyoming Division of State Parks, Historic Sites and Trails, in conjunction with various other state agencies celebrate Wyoming Public Lands Day September 28. As part of the celebration, day-use fees to all Wyoming state parks and historic sites that day are waived.

In proclaiming September 28 as Wyoming Public Lands Day, Gov. Mark Gordon said, “Anybody that lives in Wyoming appreciates the value of public lands. And in Wyoming, our public lands are many.”

According to the legislation sponsored by Representative Andy Schwartz of Teton County, Wyoming Public Lands Day is a tribute to the importance of public lands in the state and to acknowledge the multiple uses of public lands.

The intent of public lands day is also to recognize the value of public lands to the state’s economy, open spaces, diversity of mineral, grazing and forestry resources and wildlife and recreational opportunities.

Additionally, the goal of Public Lands Day is to get people out to Wyoming’s parks and historic sites to enjoy the values of public lands and to become stewards by helping with specific projects.

An annual event, Wyoming Public Lands Day will serve as a reminder of these values as well as an opportunity to highlight outdoor opportunities and public lands.

The two planned events in Fremont County are below:

Boysen State Park — Litter patrol and cleanup at Brannon boat ramp and the swim beach. Meet park staff at Brannon Lawn at 8 a.m. Bring sunscreen and bottled water, sturdy shoes.

Sinks Canyon State Park — Volunteers are needed to pick up trash in the park, along the trails, and in the campground.  The person who picks up the most trash will receive a prize. Also, an Interpretive program on trail ethics and key recreation resources in the park will be held. This event is free, family-friendly, and all are encouraged to join. Cleanup scheduled from 10 a.m. until 12 noon.
