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

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

Post 2021 Event Survey for Site Managers:

If you held an event this year, please take the NPLD Post Event Survey so we can measure your impact.
