Point Reyes National Seashore will host a couple events in recognition of National Public Lands Day 2013. The public is invited to join us on Sunday, September 29 for a Habitat Restoration Project workday. Additionally, we will offer the opportunity to experience tule elk during the rut (mating season) with our volunteer Tule Elk Docents on both Saturday and Sunday, September 28 and 29.
National Public Lands Day (usually observed on the fourth Saturday of September) is an annual event designed to encourage people to get outside and visit places such as Point Reyes National Seashore. National Public Lands Day is also a national volunteer effort to encourage folks to give back to the very lands we use to hike, bike, swim, explore, picnic, or just relax. It is the nation's largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands!
National Public Lands Day began in 1994 with three federal agencies and 700 volunteers. In 2012, about 175,000 volunteers worked at 2,206 sites in every state, the District of Columbia, and in many U.S. territories. 2012 was the biggest National Public Lands Day in the history of the event. 2013 will be the 20th Anniversary of National Public Lands Day. Now, eight federal agencies and many state and local lands participate in this annual day of caring for shared lands.
Below is a listing of events that were held at Point Reyes National Seashore on or in conjunction with the 2013 National Public Lands Day. All events were co-hosted by Point Reyes National Seashore Association.
