Celebrate public lands with free entry to DNR properties, Multiple Locations
Start Date: 9/28/2019 All Day
End Date: 9/28/2019
Event Description:
Celebrate public lands with free entry to DNR properties, Sept. 28

 Admission to Indiana's State Parks, State Forests, State Recreation Areas and Fish and Wildlife Areas where entrance fees are otherwise charged will be free on Sept. 28 in recognition of National Public Lands Day (except at Hardy Lake which will instead have free entry on Sept. 29)

National Public Lands Day is the nation's largest single-day volunteer effort for public lands.

Volunteer opportunities at DNR properties on Sept. 28 include trail work at Clifty Falls State Park, tree flagging at Greene Sullivan State Forest, invasive plant removals at Prophetstown, Chain O'Lakes State Parks and Mississinewa Lake, clean-ups at Blue Grass FWA, Summit Lake State Park and Salamonie Lake, river sweep at O'Bannon Woods State park and clearing archery lanes at J.E. Roush FWA. Many other properties will offer similar volunteer opportunities.

But National Public Lands Day isn't all work and no play. The day is a reminder that public lands are places for outdoor recreation, conservation and making memories with families and friends. Properties will offer hikes, pioneer activities, crafts and live bird shows, too.

For complete list of programs, visit and look on Sept. 28.
