Celebrate National Public Lands Day

Celebrate National Public Lands Day by volunteering at the Friends of Panthertown Work Day on September 26th

Thousands of volunteers in every state will put their hands to work on September 26th in a coast-to-coast effort to improve and enhance our treasured lands. It began in 1994 with three federal agencies and 700 volunteers. Last year 120,000 volunteers worked in over 1,800 locations and in every state. Now, 8 federal agencies and many state and local lands participate in this annual day of caring for shared lands. In 2008, 120,000 volunteers built trails and bridges, removed trash and invasive plants, and planted over 1.6 million trees.
