Move Outside on National Public Lands Day!
ANCHORAGE – The BLM Campbell Creek Science Center and MOA Anchorage Parks and Recreation say, “Let’s Move Outside” on National Public Lands Day, Saturday, September 24, 2011.
This theme is tied to the First Lady’s “Let’s Move!” campaign, an effort to raise healthier kids (see www.letsmove.gov/ and www.letsmove.gov/letsmoveoutside.php). Fall is a great time to get out, move around, and spruce up your favorite parcel of public land!
