Volunteers lend hand to public land
Giving a public hand for public land.
It’s estimated more than 170,000 volunteers will be out giving back to their public lands on Sept. 28, National Public Lands Day.
With more than 2,100 sites across the country hosting NPLD events, it’s easy to find something near you.

The day also is a free-entrance day at most national parks.
Other events will take place throughout the fall.
