Happy Alaska Day!
Alaska Day marks the anniversary of the formal transfer of the Alaskan territory from Russia to the United States on October 18, 1867.
The Bureau of Land Management administers approximately 75 million surface acres of federal public land - from national historic trails to wild rivers to recreation areas. Now that’s something to celebrate!
