Prescott NF Waives Day-Use Fees for National Public Lands Day

On September 23, 2023, National Environmental Education Foundations will celebrate the 30th annual National Public Lands Day (NPLD) and a renewed commitment to securing a safer and healthier world for everyone for generations to come.  For three decades, NPLD has united communities in the care and celebration of our nation’s public lands.
