National Public Lands Day

Established in 1994, National Public Lands Day is the nation's largest, single-day volunteer effort. It is a great opportunity to connect people to public lands in their community, inspire environmental stewardship, and encourage use of public lands for education, recreation, and general health.

National Public Lands Day is organized annually by the National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF), in cooperation with Department of the Interior, Department of the Army, and Department of Agriculture. The National Park Service is one of the event’s largest providers of sites and volunteers. Other participating federal agencies include the US Fish and Wildlife, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, US Forest Service, and US Army Corps of Engineers.

There are all sorts of ways that you can volunteer at a park. By volunteering on this day, you will receive a fee-free day coupon to be used at a future date. Please be sure to post your activity to your favorite social media channel and hashtag #NPSVolunteer and #NPLD!
