NPLD 2024: Together for Tomorrow

For over three decades, National Public Lands Day (NPLD) has inspired hundreds of thousands of volunteers to give back to our nation's public lands in all 50 states and US territories. This September, communities across the country will unite to celebrate and care for our nation’s public lands—both for today and the future.

On Saturday, September 28, we’ll join “Together for Tomorrow” to ensure the longevity of our cherished places while fostering environmental stewardship among youth and their communities. From trail maintenance to tree planting, beach clean-ups to forest bathing, and more, volunteers of all ages and abilities roll up their sleeves and work together for a common goal—stewarding America’s natural resources for future generations to enjoy.

But NPLD is more than just a clean-up. It’s a chance for people to connect with their communities, fostering a kinship found among those working together for the greater good. It’s an opportunity to establish deep, meaningful connections for youth with nature by providing positive experiences outdoors.  Most importantly, it’s a showcase for America’s public lands and their capacity for providing education, recreation, and overall benefits to our physical and mental health.
