NPLD for Site Managers

National Public Lands Day

Site managers are at the heart of every successful National Public Lands Day (NPLD) event.  They 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. This year's theme is "Giving Back Together," which focuses on returning to public spaces with a renewed sense of appreciation and gratitude for the respite they have offered, as well as a greater recognition of the responsibility for keeping them clean, safe, and accessible that falls on all of us. 

Below you will find resources designed to help NPLD Site Managers register, plan, and promote their events.

PLEASE NOTE:  For federal site managers requesting fee-free coupons, the deadline was August 5, 2022

Thanks for your interest in serving as a NPLD Site Manager!
