Get outside and volunteer: National Public Lands Day is Sept 24

This year, National Public Lands Day is September 24, 2011. While many supporters of the National Conservation Lands already volunteer throughout the year, this day provides a high profile opportunity to get others involved in conservation stewardship projects. More than 1,900 events are scheduled across the country, including several in the National Conservation Lands.

Among the events scheduled:

In addition to these events, several organizations also conduct National Public Lands Day on other days throughout the year. If you know of a NPLD event within the National Conservation Lands that isn’t listed above, please mention it in the comments. If you’re participating in an event on Saturday, please let us know about your experience.
Thanks for helping to restore and protect our National Conservation Lands.
