This coming Saturday, the 20th anniversary of National Public Lands Day, public lands throughout the country will be offering opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts to make a difference by volunteering. This is a chance to put your hands to work in your favorite park or public lands. The Bureau of Land Management, the Forest Service, the National Park Service, the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers and many state and local agencies are prepared to welcome eager volunteers and put them to work making public lands all the better.
Trails will be improved, trees will be planted, areas cleared of brush and habitats for wildlife will be enhanced. These agencies have created special projects where your talents and energy can make a difference.
