It is PUBLIC property. Didn't your mama teach you how to read? If it's PUBLIC, that generally means IT BELONGS TO ALL. I can't believe the people who come here whining about something only to find out that they didn't bother reading the original post.
Flora and Fauna
All plants and animals are protected in national and state parks and national wildlife refuges. On all other public lands state wildlife laws apply to the taking of wildlife. On Forest Service and BLM lands permits may be obtained for cutting firewood or collecting plants for personal use.
With the exception of lands administered by the National Park Service, invertebrate fossils, rocks, plants, fruits and berries may be collected for personal use on most public lands. For specific rules, consult the appropriate agency.
