30 Great American Places

September is a month tailor-made for sportsmen and women and there is no better place to spend it than on our public lands.

The dog days of summer have given way to cooler temperatures and a multitude of opportunities beckon hunters and anglers: brown trout chasing streamers, elk bugles ringing through the mountains, ruffed grouse bursting from underfoot, brook trout aglow in spawning colors, hatches of blue wing olives, salmon returning home to spawn…

We all have our favorite public lands where we savor these experiences and this September we are celebrating them with 30 Great American Places. Join us as we unveil 30 of our best public lands throughout the month of September and take action to protect America’s hunting and fishing heritage.
