Admission to BLM lands free Saturday
Yumans will be able to enjoy several Bureau of Land Management recreational areas for free during the annual National Get Outdoors Day on Saturday.
Local sites include Squaw Lake Campground and Boat Launch, Senator Wash Boat Ramp and Day Use Area, Senator Wash North and South Shore Campgrounds, Betty's Kitchen Watchable Wildlife Area, Oxbow Recreation and Wildlife Area, and Ehrenberg Sandbowl Off-Highway Vehicle Area.
The purpose is to encourage healthy, active outdoor fun at sites across the nation and reconnect youths to the great outdoors, organizers stated.
Those who will be enjoying the outdoors are reminded to adhere to current fire restrictions.
“BLM invites the public to enjoy these campgrounds and other lands across the state, but ask the public to be aware of the fire restrictions in place and the need to be extremely cautious when recreating this summer,” said Ray Suazo, BLM Arizona state director.
