National Public Lands Day (NPLD) will take place on September 24, 2016 and is a project of the National Environmental Education Foundation. It is a chance to help keep our public lands beautiful. Each year, thousands of Americans take part in NPLD, the nation’s largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands. Last year, 150,000 volunteers participated at more than 2,000 locations across the country. Their efforts to build trails, remove invasive species, paint signs, beautify landscaping, remove trash, etc. totaled millions of dollars in improvements.
Locally this year will mark the 19thth anniversary of National Public Lands Day projects coordinated by SJMA. The event is organized in partnership with San Juan Mountains Association (SJMA) and the Bureau of Land Management. The work projects are designed to provide education and stewardship opportunities for the participants.
