Title: National Public Lands Day
Url: http://www.publiclandsday.org/
Publisher: National Environmental Education Foundation (Washington, D.C.)
Description: Sponsored by the National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF), National Public Lands Day (NPLD) was started in 1994 with three federal agencies and 700 volunteers. Today, over 150,000 volunteers take part every year at over 2,000 locations across the United States. The idea for such a day came from the work of the Civilian Conservation Corps, and on this site, visitors can learn about NPLD and how they can participate. Here, visitors can sign up for their newsletter, find a local NPLD site, and also learn about past projects. The "Resource Library" contains posters, handouts, and site manager tools that will help interested parties create a successful NPLD event. Moving along, the "Get Involved" section contains information about setting up a NPLD site, grants, webinars, and stories from volunteers. Finally, the "Photos & Videos" area contains photographic essays and video clips that document past NPLD activities.
