How to Volunteer for National Public Lands Day
On September 24, 2011, parks across the country will welcome volunteers to plant trees, repair trails and enhance natural habitats for National Public Lands Day.
There are over 1800 sites looking for volunteers, ranging from the Brooklyn Bridge Park in New York City to the Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park.
Volunteers of all ages from around the world are welcome at any of the volunteer sites, but they will not be able to provide housing or meals for those helping out. Most parks are waiving the entry fee for the day though.
