National Public Lands Day work sites can involve all sorts of activities such as picking up trash, planting trees and native vegetation, building or repairing trails and bridges, removing invasive plants and much more! In 2006, 100,000 volunteers and community partners contributed an estimated $12 million of improvements to 1100 public land sites in all 50 states.
Volunteer work days do not necessarily have to take place on September 29th.
