‘Paddle, Picnic, Play’ at Voyageurs National Park on Public Lands Day, September 24, 2022
International Falls, MN: Join us for a day of free, family-friendly programming outside and on the water at the Rainy Lake Visitor Center in Voyageurs National Park!
We invite local community members and visitors to celebrate the end of challenging summer flooding and the beautiful transition of seasons with a day of free activities outside and on the water. The National Park Service and Voyageurs Conservancy are excited to welcome special program partner Wilderness Inquiry and their traveling Canoemobile program.
Explore Rainy Lake on 10-person canoes and learn about the rich science, history, and geography of its waters. Additionally, special education programs will help you connect with and give back to the park you love. Bring the whole family and a picnic. We especially encourage adults, high school students, young explorers 4th grade and up, and their families to join us!
Established in 1994 and held annually on the fourth Saturday in September, National Public Lands Day is traditionally the nation’s largest single-day volunteer effort. It celebrates the connection between people and green space in their community, inspires environmental stewardship, and encourages the use of open space for education, recreation, and health benefits.
