National Public Lands Day (NPLD) is the nation’s largest, single-day volunteer effort for public lands. NPLD 2015 will take place on Saturday, September 26.
On NPLD more than 175,000 volunteers and park visitors celebrated at more than 2,100 public land sites in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
NPLD began in 1994 with three sites and 700 volunteers. It proved to be a huge success and became a yearly tradition, typically held on the last Saturday in September. Since the first NPLD, the event has grown by leaps and bounds.
