National Public Lands Day Charity Profile
NPLD is the nation's largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands Americans enjoy. In 2010, 170,000 volunteers built trails and bridges, removed trash and invasive plants, planted trees and restored our water resources. Join us for the next NPLD on September 24, 2011.National Public Lands Day (NPLD) is nation's largest one-day volunteer event focused on protecting the public lands Americans utilize every day.
NPLD engages a diverse audience of adult and youth volunteers to get outdoors and improve their lands, whether at the grandest national park or at an urban park in their neighborhood. In 2010, over 2,080 sites hosted volunteer events nationwide.
NPLD inspires a new generation of volunteers committed to service on public lands. The event also encourages volunteers to explore and enjoy America's natural wonders through outdoor recreation and service. After working hard, volunteers can hike, swim, take a bicycle ride and get healthy in America's backyard.
