National Public Lands Day

According to their website, National Public Lands Day is “the nation’s largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands Americans enjoy. In 2009, 150,000 volunteers built trails and bridges, removed trash and invasive plants, planted trees and restored our water resources.”  And it’s tomorrow!  On September 25, 2010, there will be a nationwide collaborative project to restore and support public lands.  By clicking here to go to the NPLD website, you can enter your zip code and find a project in which to participate tomorrow.  Where we live, I found weed removal, trash pickup, trail construction, creek clean-up, fishing access improvement, shoreline stabilization, construction of hardened fishing sites, forest restoration, and more.  If you have nothing planned tomorrow and you want to do some work on public lands, now is your chance! 

And if that isn’t quite your speed, in celebration of National Public Lands Day, the national parks are opening their doors for free admission.  If you live near one, head on out and enjoy! 

And if this all sounds great, but its just too short notice, like for our family, head on over here and become a fan on facebook so you can get advance notice for next year!
