Celebrate National Public Lands Day

National Public Lands Day (NPLD) is the nation's largest, single-day volunteer event for public lands. Participating in NPLD is a great way to get the recommended 60 minutes of daily activity, while you lend a hand for public lands. NPLD is also a designated fee-free entrance day at many federal public lands including national parks.

In 2012, NPLD will be held on Saturday, Sept. 29, 2012.

Eight federal agencies as well as nonprofit organizations and state, regional and local governments participate in the annual day of caring for 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.

So, if you'd like to volunteer your time and effort to help preserve our public lands, feel the satisfaction that you've given back to your community, all while enjoying the great outdoors, here's a link to some opportunities available in the state of Arizona.
