National Public Lands Day (www.npld.com) is the nation’s largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands Americans enjoy.
Volunteers can choose from a variety of activities to help improve and enhance the park: installation of new post and rail fence, trail repair, native plant restoration, and litter clean-up. Dress appropriately. Bring gloves, sunscreen and a hat. Water and snacks will be provided.
For more information, call National Park Service Volunteer Manager Mike Malone at 805-370-2317.

Did You Know?
A study that began in 2002 reveals a lion and his offspring are surviving in the Santa Monica Mountains. Radio collars track them crossing roads and navigating through open spaces. Their future is uncertain, but with conservation efforts, they may continue to make these mountains their home.
