NPLD for Volunteers

NEEF National Public Lands Day (NPLD), sponsored by Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc., is the nation's largest, single-day volunteer effort for public lands. Through NPLD, NEEF works to connect people to public lands in their community, inspire environmental stewardship, and encourage use of public lands for education, recreation, and general health.

This hub serves as a repository for volunteers to find and participate in various NPLD events happening throughout the country. Use our interactive map or search for events based off your zip code. Register to stay in touch with NEEF on our various environmental initiatives.

#NPLD is happening on September 30th, 2017!
