Q-Tip: Public Lands Day

That celebration attracts some 70,000 volunteers, nationwide, annually.

There is a need for volunteers to help with those celebrations.

The Carson City NPLD celebration will be held at the Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) Silver Saddle Ranch, and it will be co-hosted by BLM and the Friends of the Silver Saddle Ranch.

The Silver Saddle Ranch is just east of Carson City along Carson River Road, just before it reaches the Carson River at Lloyd's Bridge.
