Date: Sat, Sept 25, 2010
Locations: Various locations across the US through local Broadbands and in southern Utah’s San Juan County.
National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands Americans enjoy. National Public Lands Day began in 1994 with three federal agencies and 700 volunteers. On September 26, 2009, 150,000 volunteers worked at over 2,000 locations and in every state and in many U.S. territories. They built trails and bridges, removed trash and invasive plants and planted millions of trees. National Public Lands Day keeps the promise of the Civilian Conservation Corps, the “tree army” that worked from 1933-42 to preserve and protect America’s natural heritage.
Great Old Broads for Wilderness will be on the ground in various locales. See if your local Broadband has a project underway…or help them get one going.
If Utah is on your radar this fall, Great Old Broads for Wilderness will again work in southern Utah on National Public Lands Day, Saturday, September 25. This year’s project is yet to be determined. Make your plans now to join us for a day of work and a day of fun exploring in the Comb Ridge/Cedar Mesa area of SE Utah.
