National Public Lands Day

Do you want to give back to the public lands where you hike, bike, paddle, explore, picnic, and relax? Join your fellow volunteers in Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP) to celebrate National Public Lands Day by preserving and serving public parks. Bring your friends, family, and coworkers to help preserve CVNP for future generations. Kids are welcome!

National Public Lands Day is the nation's largest, single-day volunteer effort for public lands, and encourages shared stewardship of these valued, irreplaceable lands. On this day, volunteers assist land managers in hands-on work to improve these lands for outdoor recreation. Help to give back and preserve one of your favorite public places- Cuyahoga Valley National Park!

On National Public Lands Day, Cuyahoga Valley National Park is hosting two different projects. The dibbling project will help reestablish fields in CVNP with native plants. Dibblers will be used to create holes in the ground so native seedlings and wildflowers can be planted. This project requires physical activity and the ability to hike 2 miles. The trail work project will help keep CVNP's trails in top shape. Necessary repairs and improvements will be made to allow hikers to enjoy the trail for years to come. Trail work is a moderate to strenuous physical activity and it requires the ability to hike 4 miles.

Volunteers who are 10-15 years of age must have parent or guardian supervision at the project site. Volunteers who are 16 to 18 years of age are only required to have a parent or guardian sign their volunteer agreement form.

For groups of 5 or more individuals, please contact the volunteer office at 330-657-2299 or to register.
