National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands American’s enjoy. In 2005, nearly 90,000 volunteers built trails and bridges, planted trees and plants, and removed trash and invasive plants. Join us Saturday, September 30, 2006 for the 13th annual National Public Lands Day and help us care for our land. We invite everybody from federal land management agencies to state parks and playgrounds in local neighborhoods to participate.Check their Get Involved page to learn more. Activities in your area may be coordinated by a local organization. For example, in New York City the activities are being coordinated by Partnership for Parks, a joint program of the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation and the private, non-profit CityParks Foundation.
Thanks to RESTORE, the weekly email newsletter of the Society for Ecological Restoration International (SER), for bringing this to my attention.
