For that memorable backpacking trip … for the clean water flowing from your tap … for the chance to glimpse a massive bull moose … September 24 is your day to say thank you.
National Public Lands Day, held annually in September, is the nation’s largest single-day volunteer event for public lands in the United States. Each year, thousands of volunteers turn out to remove trash, pull invasive weeds, improve trails and do much more to improve the public lands that provide us all with so many benefits.
With our community-based mission, the National Forest Foundation is dedicated to involving people and communities in this very type of environmental stewardship year-round. But the NFF is also helping to add to the results that National Public Lands Day generates with some NFF-sponsored events this September 24.

** Join the NFF and REI Northridge/Arcadia to restore the Wildwood Picnic Area and Stone Canyon Trail in California’s Angeles National Forest, an NFF Treasured Landscapes campaign site.
