Celebrate public lands with free entry to DNR properties, Sept. 22
Start Date: 9/5/2018
Event Description:

Admission to Indiana’s State Park properties and State Forest recreation areas where entrance fees are otherwise charged will be free on Sept. 22 in recognition of National Public Lands Day (except at Spring Mill State Park which will instead have free entry on Sept. 23)

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


Volunteer opportunities at Indiana State Park properties on Sept. 22 include trail work at Clifty Falls State Park, seed collecting at Prophetstown State Park, invasive plant removals at Charlestown, Chain O’Lakes and Fort Harrison state parks, and clean-ups at Mounds and Summit Lake state park, and at Salamonie Lake and Mississinewa Lake. 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. 22.
