About National Public Lands Day (NPLD) & National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF):
National Public Lands Day (NPLD) is an annual day of service originally created by National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF). As a result, NPLD has become the nation's largest, single-day volunteer effort for public lands. Through NPLD, NEEF works to connect people to public lands in their community, inspire environmental stewardship, and encourage use of public lands for education, recreation, and general health. This effort helps NEEF meet their mission to "make the environment ever-present in the daily lives of Americans by delivering practical, accessible information they can use through the sources they know and trust."
