National public lands celebration highlights value for Wisconsin

Public lands and outdoor sports add to the quality of life in Door and Kewaunee counties, as well as Wisconsin overall, and will be celebrated September 28th.  The National Public Lands Day and National Hunting and Fishing Day pay tribute to the conservation work funded by hunters and anglers through license fees and excise taxes on sporting gear.  With over six-million acres of public lands available for access, Department of Natural Resources Wildlife Biologist Josh Martinez says they're an asset for outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy hunting and fishing or just want to get away from urban or suburban life for a while.



The National Public Lands Day and National Hunting and Fishing Day is also a time to celebrate the economic impact of outdoor recreation. The DNR says people who want to get into the outdoors annually add nearly $18-billion in business for Wisconsin.
