Coming Up: National Public Lands Day - Volunteer

This Saturday, September 27, is National Public Lands Day – the country’s largest hands-on volunteer day to improve our public parks. Last year, 110,000 volunteers made the parks better, planting trees, removing trash and invasive plants, and building trails.

California has 88 parks participating this Saturday. To see a list, click here. A few local ones to point out: Golden Gate National Parks has sites in Marin, San Francisco and San Mateo looking for volunteers. Also consider Huddart County Park in Woodside.

If you can’t volunteer this Saturday, you can still help out in the future. These parks use volunteers on a regular basis, so check their websites to find something that works for you.

Plus, you can find out about family hikes and activities on their websites (all listed here).
