On Sept. 24, the entire nation will participate in National Public Land's Day including Sanibel Island's J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge. As the nation's largest, single day volunteer event for public lands, the event calls for people of all ages to connect to America's great outdoors and care for the country's public lands.
"National Public Lands Day is a day for us all to celebrate conservation lands that are preserved for all of us to enjoy," said Supervisory Refuge Ranger Toni Westland. "Here at 'Ding' Darling Refuge visitors can come out to the refuge free of charge, attend a program and enjoy their public land."
"Bring your smart phone to get started by a ranger on the new trail," said Westland. "Meet the ranger in the education center to caravan out to the trail."
To honor the debut of "Save the Vanishing Species" stamp featuring the Amur tiger cub, J.N. "Ding" Darling is partnering with Sanibel (A) Postmaster Debbie Howard to raise awareness of the fund-raising postage stamp.
