More than 180,000 volunteers are expected at more than 2,000 sites across the country on Saturday, September 29, to take part in National Public Lands Day (NPLD), the largest single-day volunteer effort for public lands in the United States.
Volunteers in every state will visit their favorite parks, beaches, wildlife preserves, or forests and chip in to help improve these treasured places that belong to all Americans. They will improve and restore the lands and facilities that Americans use for recreation, education, exercise and just plain enjoyment.
As part of this annual celebration of public lands, NPLD is going digital by encouraging participants to post photos and stories about their experiences on public lands:
"The Bureau of Land Management is hosting a National Public Lands Day social media meetup on Saturday, Sept. 29. While you're out volunteering, share stories and photos with the BLM. On Twitter, tweet @BLMNational and the hashtag #NPLD. Follow BLM and National Public Lands Day on Facebook and tag postings @BLMNational and @publiclandsday. Tag Tumblr posts with #NPLD and #Bureauoflandmanagement (no spaces). If you have instagram, share your photos with @mypubliclands using the hashtag #NPLD. The BLM will retweet, reblog and like the best throughout the day!"
