Public Lands Month Packout – Nockamixon State Park, PA

September is Public Lands Month and in celebration, BHA members across North America will be participating in our Public Land Pack Out, a chapter-to-chapter competition aimed at ridding our shared lands and waters of more than 1,000 bags of garbage.

Pennsylvania Chapter members and friends will meet September 20th at Nockamixon State Park in the Southeast Region to complete a cleanup around the heavily used parking lot areas on the Route 563 side of the park.  We will meet at the Marina Visitor Center at 4:30PM and split up to cover as much ground as possible. See map below and Google map and directions link.

This area of the park was selected as it is popular for both boaters and anglers and has seen heavy use this summer by all outdoor user groups.

Please bring a mask, boots, gloves, trashbags, a backpack, hunters orange and your favorite BHA hat.

Please RSVP below so we know how many folks to expect.

We will be taking special precautions at this event to follow coronavirus regulations and guidelines, including:

  • Anyone who is not feeling well or is experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19 such as fever, shortness or breach or coughing/sneezing, or has been in contact with someone that has recently tested positive should not attend.
  • All participants must bring a face mask. Face masks must be worn whenever a distance of at least 6 feet cannot be maintained.
  • Attendees must follow both handwashing and coughing/sneezing etiquette.

WIN a $300 First Lite Gift Card!

The Pennsylvania Chapter is sweetening the deal for all PA Pack Out volunteers. The chapter will give away a $300 First Lite Gift Card to a randomly drawn winner who attends one of our Public Land Pack Out events this September. One entry will be awarded for each event attended. A list of attendees will be kept by the leader of each event and a winner will be selected at the beginning of October.

Even if you cannot attend this or another Public Land Pack Out Event, you can still support this effort. Our friends at First Lite have generously offered to donate $5 to BHA for every bag of trash packed out, up to $5,000 during the month of September. First Lite also will be giving away 20 gift cards valued at $100 each to the top 20 public land trash packers. Additionally, 10 gift cards will be given away throughout the month to those who share a photo of the Public Land Pack Out on Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #publiclandpackout and #publiclandowner

Grab some garbage bags and help us leave your public lands a little better than you found them, then post your results for a chance to win.

Here’s how you can participate: 

  • Pick up trash while you’re out hunting, fishing or hiking on public land and record the total number of bags of trash picked up. Then, submit through the portal here!
  • Share your pictures of public land trash being packed out on social media using the hashtags #publiclandpackout and #publiclandowner.
