Get a free pass to one of the coast’s most iconic natural areas, while helping preserve its natural beauty. Volunteers are invited to join the Bureau of Land Management for a National Public Lands Day event at the Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area on Saturday, Sept. 30.

Entrance fees will be waived, and special activities and educational presentations will be available throughout the park.

Volunteers should meet at the Interpretive Center, and be sure to wear outdoor-appropriate clothing and footwear.
