National Public Lands Day
National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest, single-day volunteer event for public lands. The annual event offers opportunities to join your community in volunteer conservation while enjoying natural beauty. This year’s National Public Lands Day will be celebrated on Saturday, September 22.
We believe that “people make the parks” and this is evident every September as visitors become volunteers at Florida State Parks, helping restore the iconic places we all love so much. Beginning September 15 and running through September 22, Florida State Parks are hosting events for International Coastal Cleanup and National Public Lands Day. Whether you help clean up a shoreline or remove invasive plants, your work will contribute to maintaining our natural resources.
Show your love for Florida State Parks by joining one of the many programs happening across the state. In 2016, Florida State Parks had a record-breaking year for our National Public Lands Day events. Unfortunately, Hurricane Irma forced cancellation of many events in 2017. This year we hope to have another record-breaking year with community members and groups getting involved and giving back to our state parks. You can help us make this the best National Public Lands Day yet.
