Grand Teton National Park - NPLD 2016

National Public Lands Day

The 25th Annual NPLD is happening on September 22, 2018!

From our neighborhood parks to our nation’s iconic national parks and forests, public lands of all sizes and varieties are the places where we live, learn, play, exercise, and relax.

Now it’s your turn to give back!

National Public Lands Day (NPLD), sponsored by Toyota, 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. Whether you volunteer on NPLD, enjoy some boating, hiking, fishing, or camping, or simply learn more about your public lands and the plants and wildlife that live there, we invite you to take this day to enjoy the great outdoors and celebrate the lands that give us so much.

NPLD is a fee-free day for all federal public lands and many state parks. Bring your family, friends, students, or coworkers to spend the day outdoors giving back to your community by pulling invasive species, maintaining trails, picking up trash, and more. Your work will help ensure our public lands continue to be beautiful places for all to enjoy!

Follow NPLD on Twitter and Facebook for the latest updates and engage with the community through the hashtag #NPLD.

Learn more about how outdoor activity impacts our health, and how our public lands and wildlife are impacted by a changing climate.
