National Public Lands Day, September 27
On Saturday, September 27, the National Park Service celebrates the 21st annual National Public Lands Day by providing free admission to all national parks. To learn more about National Public Lands Day, please visitwww.publiclandsday.org.
National Public Lands Day is intended to encourage shared stewardship of our nation’s public lands. It is a day designated for all of our nation’s people–individuals, families, and organizations — to pull together and help improve America’s largest natural resource–its public lands. Today it is the nation’s largest, hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance federal, state and local public lands around the country. Nationwide, folks will pull together in work projects that range from planting trees and collecting seeds to building bridges and cutting trails.
