Celebrate National Public Lands Day!
National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands Americans enjoy. In 2008, 120,000 volunteers built trails and bridges, removed trash and invasive plants, and planted over 1.6 million trees. Join us at one of our many Green Cities events for the 16th annual National Public Lands Day.
