In celebration of the 22nd annual National Public Lands Day, the Bureau of Land Management’s Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area will host a free admission day on Saturday, September 26. Special activities, presentations and volunteer opportunities will be available throughout the park.

Last year, 2,132 public land sites, across all 50 states, hosted National Public Lands Day (NPLD) events. More than 175,000 people maintained trails, planted trees, cleaned up shorelines, and controlled invasive species.

At Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area, on Oregon’s central coast, hour-long service projects will occur throughout the day, along with educational activities both indoors and out. Please join us to learn and contribute to your public lands!
