National Public Lands Day

Saturday, 25 September, is being observed as National Public Lands Day, considered to be the nation’s largest, single-day volunteer effort for public lands (federal, state, regional, and municipal). This year’s observance is the 28th Anniversary of National Public Lands Day.

During this annual day of caring for public lands, volunteers assist at parks and other public lands by collecting invasive plants; building and maintaining trails; planting trees, shrubs and other native plants; removing trash from trails and other places; and offering a number of other services.

Among NPLD efforts currently listed in New England, volunteers plan to be working at two sites in Connecticut, one site in Maine, seven sites in Massachusetts, one site in Rhode Island, and one site in Vermont.
