National Public Lands Day with Ashley Lusk
Hey Paul Ashley here I am excited for you to tell me all about National Public Lands Day the only thing keeping me saying during the pandemic has been the ability to take my dog and my partner and get in our car and drive to the middle of nowhere and most often that middle of nowhere is usually a state or local or National Park and what I love about these public lands is that anyone can come for a very low price or no price and really find and discover the great outdoors. So Paul tell me more about what makes them so special. Thanks. Today September Twenty Six, twenty twenty is National Public Lands Day the reason I give you the date and year is because this National Day officially falls on the four Saturday of September every year the goal this day which started in Nineteen ninety-four is to volunteer your time by visiting your favorite public land and doing some good like repairing trails or electing trash due to the pandemic psalm not all annual events have been canceled but have no fear of course there are some virtual events I will put a link in the show notes to help you find one. If you do get to your favorite public spot, you can share your story using the public land's Day take. Today's first recommendation is from the she explores podcast it's an interview with advocate Katie Boue.
