|Skills Whose land is it anyway?
Knowing where you are recreating is important because rules, regulations and activities allowed vary from one area to the next. By doing some homework before your trip, you can ensure that you are aware of the rules and regulations, and also know what activities are allowed. This will help you match your trip expectations and goals with recreational lands that meet your needs, and will help you minimize your overall impact.
Read more about specific federal land management agencies and why it's important to know whose land you are enjoying.
