The Angeles National Forest is offering visitors a “Fee Free” day and inviting volunteers for hands-on service to improve a picnic area Saturday, all in honor of National Public Lands Day, according to a news release.

The day is an annual event in which volunteers organize and work to improve the nation’s forests, parks and other public areas. The normally required National Adventure Pass for daytime activities such as hiking and fishing will be waived, according to the statement.

Forest Service officials, working with the National Forest Foundation and the REI store chain, will offer a family-friendly, half-day activity at the Wildwood Picnic Area on Doske Road, off Big Tujunga Canyon Road, northeast of Tujunga.

The cleanup includes litter pick up, picnic-table refurbishing, removal of visitor-made creek dams and other environmentally friendly activities from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Volunteers are advised to bring work gloves, hats, lunch, water bottles and non-skid shoes.

Registration is required. For more information, please access: volunteer/event/440/signup.
“Fee Free” days are observed by the Forest Service four times each year. They include: National Trails Day on June 2; Back to School season (mid-August); National Public Lands Day (Sept. 29); and Veterans Day on Nov. 11.
Visitors who inadvertently use a Daily Adventure Pass this weekend can have it replaced free of charge.
