National Public Lands Day – Please volunteer 9/27/14

National Public Lands Day

Join me! Volunteer today! I’ll be cleaning up Shoal Creek – where will you be?

Saturday, September 27, 2014

National Public Lands Day (NPLD) is the nation’s largest, single-day volunteer effort for public lands including parks, trails, and green spaces. Austin’s annual NPLD event is hosted by Austin Parks Foundation and Texas Conservation Corps, and occurs this year on Saturday, September 27th. Since our first NPLD, the event has grown by leaps and bounds. Last year in Austin nearly 700 volunteers participated at 26 sites across the city, nearly doubling our efforts from 2012!

Austin Parks Foundation and Texas Conservation Corps invite you to join us to help make our 2014 event our best yet. There are many choices for NPLD projects, including mulching, habitat restoration, building and maintaining trails, park maintenance, clean-ups, and more. No matter how you choose to lend a hand for NPLD, you’ll be making a difference.
