Santa Fe National Forest to celebrate ‘Public Lands Day’


SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – If you’re looking to get outside, the Santa Fe National Forest is waiving fees at many recreation sites Saturday.

It’s part of the 23rd Annual Public Lands Day, the largest single day, volunteer effort for public lands.

Activities include trail work and a kids event in Cuba, N.M. Volunteers will work on the trail re-route along the Borrego-Bear Wallow Trail, and the kids’ event will include Smokey Bear and other educational activities.

Fees at all National Forests and grasslands will be waived at many day-use sites, non-reserve campgrounds and developed trail heads.

Visitors to the Santa Fe National Forest are encouraged to contact the appropriate ranger district office to confirm which recreation sites are included in the National Public Lands Day fee waiver.
