Helping Hands for America's Lands

Volunteering outdoors is an excellent way to improve the health of a community. But did you know that volunteering can also improve your own health?

The activities performed on National Public Lands Day (NPLD), like pulling invasive plants or building a trail, helps keep you fit and active. Receive your 60-minutes of recommended physical activity by improving our public lands.

While volunteers will be working hard to improve our parks on National Public Lands Day, they will also be enjoying America’s natural wonders. NPLD is a gateway to discovering the beauty and opportunity for fun at our parks.
