Hawaii Volcanoes National Park celebrates National Public Land Day | Environment
The following information is provided by Hawaii Volcanoes National Park:
National Public Land’s Day (NPLD) is the nation’s largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance America’s public lands. In 2011, 2,030 sites hosted NPLD volunteer activities, and 170,000 volunteers removed trash and invasive weeds, built and maintained trails, and planted trees, shrubs, and native plants.
In honor of NPLD, the National Park Service holds a “Free Fee” day annually on the last Saturday of September. Friends of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park stations volunteers at the park entrance to solicit donations from visitors to help raise funds for our many projects that support the park. We also provide opportunities for volunteers to participate in service projects such as invasive species removal and native species planting.
Please assist us on this important day!Hosted By FHVNP Volunteers
