Our Commitment To Public Lands Every Day

Public lands are core to Americans’ everyday life. They provide places to play, learn, explore, vacation, and be active.  From the community park in your neighborhood to our nation’s awe-inspiring national parks, these public lands welcome all ages, stimulate the senses, build new connections to nature, and create lasting memories for millions of people each year.

2017 Every Day Event Grants (NOW CLOSED)

Our nation’s public lands are places where we picnic, play ball, fish, fly kites, pull weeds, and plant seeds. Our public lands should be safe places of natural beauty where everyone can go to lend a hand, observe nature, and enjoy life.
