National Public Lands Day Events at First Peoples Buffalo Jump State Park -Saturday, September 24th

(Ulm, MT) – Montana State Parks ( will host National Public Lands Day events at First Peoples Buffalo Jump State Park on Saturday, September 24th beginning at 9am.

National Public Lands Day is America’s largest volunteer event for our public lands. It is held in late September to draw volunteers out to help improve and enhance our nation’s public lands. Over 30% of America’s land is public land. In Montana, we take pride of our public lands. This year, please consider contributing some time and labor in enhancing those public lands.

In celebration of National Public Lands Day, park staff will lead volunteers in a Trail Work project from 9am to 12pm. Come help repair and rebuild a section of the park’s trail. Due to the physical nature of the project, this event is not recommended for children under 10.  A free lunch for the volunteers will be provided at noon. Please call the park to sign up.

Following the trail work, Junior Ranger Activities will be offered from 2pm to 3:30pm. Kids are welcome to join a park ranger for a short hike and scavenger hunt as they work to become a Jr. Ranger. The program is structured for kids ages 6 to 9, and parents must accompany their children.     

For more information or to volunteer, please call the park visitor center at (406) 866-2217.
