National Public Lands Day was established in 1993 to increase awareness of the need for shared stewardship of public lands and to encourage people to volunteer their time and work in partnership to improve, restore, or enhance public lands for outdoor recreation, education and enjoyment. National Public Lands Day is the nation's largest one-day, hands-on volunteer effort. In 2004, nearly 90,000 volunteers built trails and bridges, planted trees and plants, and removed trash and invasive plants. National Public Lands Day is sponsored by the National Environmental Education and Training Foundation in partnership with Take Pride in America®.
