National Public Lands Day

National Public Lands Day (NPLD) is this Saturday, September 26, 2009. The USA.gov site provides information about when people can volunteer their time to improve and enhance public lands.

This day is the nation’s largest hands-on volunteer effort. In addition to NPLD being a fee-free day in many federally managed lands, all NPLD volunteers who work at a site managed by the FWS, Bureau of Land Management (BLM), National Park Service (NPS), U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) or Forest Service (FS) will receive a coupon good for a “fee-free” day at any site managed by those agencies. For more information, or to register and/or find an event, please visit the NPLD’s website. You may also wish to view a full listing of NPS events.
