The #mypubliclandsroadtrip Returns for Another Summer of Adventure!

The Bureau of Land Management manages over 245 million acres of public land on behalf of the American people. Last summer, we headed out on a virtual #mypubliclandsroadtrip to “visit” those lands from east to west.  

Kicking off today, the #mypubliclandsroadtrip 2016 will feature diverse landscapes and unique resources on your public lands by activity and interest, from the best camping sites to cool geological processes and formations to ghost towns. Follow the virtual roadtrip today through Labor Day, and plan your own adventures. Explore #yourlands.

Want to get involved in the fun? Follow and share #mypubliclandsroadtrip across social media, and add your own photos to the roadtrip through the weekly My Public Lands Instagram challenges!
