Celebrate National Public Lands Day at Canyon Falls
Keweenaw National Historical Park and the Peter Wolfe Chapter of the North Country Trail Association are teaming up on Saturday, September 30th for National Public Lands Day at the gorgeous Canyon Falls! Meet at 1:00pm at the Canyon Falls Roadside Park 10 miles south of L’Anse on US-41. Volunteers will use a load of gravel provided by the falls land owner, Michigan Technological University, to improve conditions along this much-loved, high-use section of the NCNST. Bring work gloves, water bottles, and a positive attitude: shovels and wheelbarrows are welcome if you have them!
Join hundreds of thousands of fellow volunteers at public land sites across the country to give back to the lands where we play, learn, exercise, and relax in celebration of the National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF)’s 24th annual National Public Lands Day (NPLD) – the country’s largest, single-day
volunteer effort for public lands. Public lands across America come in many different forms, ranging from national parks, scenic and urban trails; local playgrounds to wildlife refuges; the ballpark down the street to the scenic byways that offer a window into new worlds.
From bird watching to backpacking, the North Country National Scenic Trail (NCNST) provides visitors an opportunity to enjoy many rewarding experiences as it winds its way across 7 northern states. Connecting a host of natural, historic and cultural areas from valleys to hilltops, cities to small towns, and everything in between. There is something for everyone to enjoy in each changing season. The Peter Wolfe Chapter of the North Country Trail Association cares for and maintains over 120 miles of the North Country National Scenic Trail as it traverses the southern part of the Keweenaw Peninsula. The trail passes cultural sites of prehistoric and historic copper mining through the Trap Hills range, brings natural landscapes into stunning panoramic views, and trails through lands rich in biodiversity.
