National Public Lands Day

National Public Lands Day (NPLD) is the nation's largest, single-day volunteer effort for public lands including parks, trails, and green spaces. NPLD began nationally in 1994 with three sites and 700 volunteers. It proved to be a huge success and became a yearly tradition, typically held on the last Saturday in September. Since the first NPLD, the event has grown by leaps and bounds. This year in Austin we had 26 park projects with more than 700 volunteers, nearly doubling our efforts over 2012!

NPLD projects include mulching, habitat restoration, building and maintaining trails, planting trees and shrubs, park clean-ups, and more. No matter how you choose lend a hand for NPLD, you’ll be making a difference.
