National Public Lands Day takes place on the fourth Saturday in September each year.
It's an opportunity to celebrate the wonderful public lands where we play, explore, connect with nature, and reconnect with ourselves. Plenty of people use Public Lands Day to rebuild trails at a local park, clean up trash, or do other awesome service projects.
In honor of this special day, we thought we'd show off a few of the public lands where we operate. Warning: these photos may make you drool a little.

This is where we test our endurance by exploring the old-growth forests of the Pacific Northwest.

This is where we paddle through rapids and calm stretches of the Yampa and Green Rivers, finding lush shoreline in the middle of an arid plain.
Grand Teton National Park
This is where we go to embrace the cold and learn the ropes of backcountry skiing and snowboarding.

This is where we reconnect with America’s first established wilderness, relishing its quiet and beauty.
