Promotional Language (for e-blasts, newsletters, etc.)

Long Blurb (227 words):

On September 28, 2019, join hundreds of thousands of people at sites throughout the country and take part in NEEF’s annual National Public Lands Day (NPLD), sponsored by national corporate sponsor Toyota. National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest, single-day volunteer effort for public lands. NEEF uses the day to connect people to public lands and their communities, inspire environmental stewardship, and encourage use of public lands for education, recreation, and general health.

This year, NPLD 2019 continues to strengthen the tradition. Volunteering on NPLD is an opportunity to spend time outside with family and friends, connect with neighbors, and enjoy the benefits that come with the satisfaction of giving back—all things that enable us to live happier, healthier lives.

Many NPLD celebrations go beyond volunteer events to include recreational and educational activities, like hikes, bike rides, paddling, bird watching, and water quality testing. To encourage people to join the fun, NPLD is a fee-free day for national parks and most other federal public lands, state parks, and other local places.

NPLD events are free, and open to people of all ages and abilities. To learn more, , or find an event near you, visit NEEFusa.org/NPLD. Follow NPLD on Twitter and Facebook for the updates and share your own NPLD activities with #NPLD.

This September, celebrate something we all share: our public lands!
