Join us at Crystal River Archaeological State Park on September 27th, 2014 for the National Public Lands Day Project.

National Public Lands Day (NPLD) is the nation's largest one-day volunteer event that benefits America's public lands. This year, thousands of Americans will volunteer to improve and enhance our nation's parks and other public lands.

Volunteers will meet at Crystal River Archaeological State Park to help remove dead trees, trim trees and chip debris for mulch.  Other projects might include replacing steps on the large temple mound or improving a garden area.

Bring water, gloves, sunscreen, bug spray and a snack if desired. Wear long pants, a hat and sturdy, closed toed shoes.  Lunch will be provided as a thank you for supporting National Public Lands Day.
