NPLD for Site Managers

National Public Lands Day: Connecting to Nature through Service

Site managers are at the heart of National Public Lands Day (NPLD). They are the boots on the ground that are responsible for hosting NPLD events and overseeing everything from event planning and execution to post-event wrap-up.

The National Environmental Education Foundation is here to support new and returning NPLD Site Managers. Below you will find resources designed to help NPLD Site Managers register, plan, and promote their event.

Thanks for your interest in serving as a NPLD Site Manager. Together, we can make this year one of the biggest and best celebrations of public lands to date.  

Circle Saturday, September 26, on your calendar and let’s get going!
