National Public Lands Day

Lend a “helping hand” for America at the nation’s largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the nation’s 600 million acres of public lands. National Public Lands Day keeps the promise of the Civilian Conservation Corps, the "tree army" that worked from 1933-1942 to preserve and protect America's natural heritage.

Join park staff, partners, and your neighbors on this day set aside each year to educate and engage the public in caring for their beloved public lands. Join in on programming, work projects, and educational activities for all ages.
