JOSHUA TREE NATIONAL PARK, Twentynine Palms, California — Volunteers are invited to Joshua Tree National Park to participate in the 21st annual National Public Lands Day on Saturday, September 27, from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm. National Public Lands Day is the largest single day of volunteerism each year on America's public lands.

Joshua Tree National Park, in cooperation with the National Environmental Education Foundation, will host a family-friendly event in which volunteers will work side by side assembling "seed balls" for reforestation projects within the park. Registration is at 8:00 am at Oasis Visitor Center in Twentynine Palms.

National Public Lands Day is expected to attract over 180,000 volunteers nationwide and celebrates the importance of recreation and public lands to community health.

Volunteers should bring water, sunscreen, appropriate footwear (no flip-flops), and a "can-do" attitude. All participants will receive a one-day park pass for their time and energy. If you have questions, please call George Land at 760-367-5507.
