National Public Lands Day (NPLD) is the nation’s largest, single-day volunteer event for public lands. Held annually on the fourth Saturday in September. NPLD is also a fee-free day - entrance fees are waived at national parks and other public lands. NEEF (National Environmental Education Foundation) coordinates National Public Lands Day. National Public Lands Day is a signature event of the National Environmental Education Foundation, Public Lands Day promotes both popular enjoyment and volunteer conservation of public lands. Three federal agencies and 700 volunteers launched the first National Public Lands Day in 1994. By 2010, participation had grown to 170,000 volunteers at more than 2,000 sites across the U.S. In addition to Public Lands Day being a free-fee day at many federally managed lands, volunteers who take part in it are treated to events such as free overnight camping at Holiday Park.
