Join the movement to pitch in and improve our parks on Saturday, September 28th, 2019 for the 26th annual National Public Lands Day!
There will be approximately 1,000 volunteering events around the country, including projects at Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Everglades, Grand Teton, and many other national parks as well as state and local parks across the nation. Use the interactive map to find an event near you, and check back as events are still being added.
Besides enjoying volunteering, you can also spend some time experiencing the parks themselves as the day is a fee-free day for all national parks as well as many state and local parks.
National Public Lands Day is the nation's largest, single-day volunteer effort for public lands. The National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF) uses the day to connect people to public lands and their communities, inspire environmental stewardship, and encourage use of public lands for education, recreation, and general health.
Many NPLD celebrations go beyond volunteer events to include recreational and educational activities, like hikes, bike rides, paddling, bird watching, and water quality testing.
Mark your calendars and get ready to celebrate something we all share: our public lands!
