Zion National Park will celebrate National Public Lands Day on Saturday, September 25, 2010. In observance of this day, the National Park Service is offering an opportunity for people to volunteer in the Kolob Canyons section of Zion National Park. Volunteer projects will include fence building and trail rehabilitation.

Volunteers should gather at the Kolob Canyons Visitor Center on Saturday, September 25. The project will last from 8 a.m. to noon. Kolob Canyons is located at Exit 40 off of Interstate 15. The exit is approximately 45 miles north of Springdale and 17 miles south of Cedar City.

Tools, snacks, and water will be provided for participants. Please be prepared and wear clothing appropriate for working outside including a hat and sturdy shoes or boots. Pre-registration is required.

National Public Lands Day is the nation's largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands. Originally established in 1994, it has become an annual event that allows volunteers to be directly involved in the stewardship of public lands. Last year 150,000 volunteers worked on over 2,000 projects in every state to help protect the nation’s cultural and natural resources.
